COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Doughnuts will no longer be served to Franklin County jail inmates.County Commissioner Mary Jo Kilroy put a $55,000 annual contract for the doughnuts on hold last month over questions about their nutritional value and trans-fat content."

It was not a frequent food item to begin with," said Chief Deputy Sheriff Mark Barrett, the jail administrator.Prisoners at the county's two correctional centers were served doughnuts every few weeks on a menu developed by a dietitian under contract with the county.

Sheriff's officials have now dropped a request asking commissioners to approve a contract that would have supplied glazed and jelly doughnuts, as well as crullers, at $4 a dozen.
