Ohio State gets bacon vending machine

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State University now has its very own bacon vending machine.

The machine is located at the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences on the university's Columbus campus, and it offers cooked bacon strips and bacon bits for $1.

The Ohio Pork Council sponsored the machine, and it received bacon donations from Smithfield, Hormel and Sugardale.

Proceeds from the machine will go toward Ohio State's meat science program. Members of the program will be responsible for machine maintenance.

The machine will remain on campus until Dec. 13.
