State officials will pick up thousands of pounds of meat from wake county schools Thursday.

Sunday, the USDA recalled more than 143 million pounds of beef. It forced several local school districts to scramble.

In Wake County alone, 35,000 pounds will be destroyed. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture says it will pick up 104,000 pounds across the state.
