A Nebraska school cook who mixed kangaroo meat into chilli beef he made for students has lost his job.

Williams said in a letter to parents on Wednesday that Frei told him he'd augmented the chilli's beef on October 10 with kangaroo meat because it is lean and nutritious. He shared the nutritional information with superintendent Williams after it was revealed the ingredient was added into the school's chili.

"1. If a family wants to eat exotic foods, they can do so on their own time - not at school", he wrote.

While the superintendent stated that he does not believe that the kangaroo meat was unhealthy or risky because it met USDA standards for sale, the district vowed to not serve food of this nature again.

If the district were to serve food with unusual ingredients, the superintendent said those ingredients should be listed on the menu so people are aware of what they're eating.

"On behalf of Potter-Dix Public Schools, I apologise for the anxiety and any harm that this has caused individual students and/or families", he said. "We will make sure that something like this never occurs again".
