Food poisoning g at Manus Island Detention Centre

Food has been an ongoing issue for the men in detention, with some complaining it is “inedible”.
They allege when visitors arrive at the centre – department officials, ministers, human rights groups – the food temporarily improves, before reverting.

Men in detention also regularly post photos of out-of-date food they say they’ve been served, or question its provenance.

One man posted a photo of his meal on 6 October: “Today’s lunch. If someone finds out what kind of animal’s meat it is please let me know.”
In August, the ABC revealed the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection ordered centre manager Transfield not to distribute $30,000 worth of muesli bars inside the detention centre because they were branded with the logo of the company that made them: Freedom Foods.

Guardian Australia has approached Transfield for comment.
