JACKSON, Mich. (AP) — Michigan authorities report a second incident of maggots being found in a prison's food service area.

The latest case happened Tuesday at the Charles Egeler Reception and Guidance Center in Jackson.

Corrections Department spokesman Russ Marlan tells the Jackson Citizen Patriot and the Detroit Free Press that Aramark Correctional Services was ordered to discard all potatoes at the kitchen.

Gov. Rick Snyder complained Tuesday of a "number of issues" with Philadelphia-based Aramark's performance as the food provider in Michigan prisons. Snyder says he may reconsider the company's 3-year, $145 million contract.

Aramark spokeswoman Karen Cutler says one spoiled potato was found in a bag in the storage area at one facility.

Prisoners at another Jackson facility reported illnesses after maggots and fly larvae were found Friday in a food line.
