Hallmark, based in Chino, Calif., supplies Westland Meat Co., a major supplier to a USDA program that distributes beef to needy families, the elderly and to schools through the National School Lunch Program. Westland was named a USDA "supplier of the year" for 2004-2005 and has delivered beef to schools in 36 states.

A list was released Thursday afternoon of the schools in Oregon that were told to hold ground beef they received from Westland. Officials are waiting for exact lot numbers to determine which schools might have received tainted meat.
