Tennessee School Serves Students Green Beans and Mice
Haven’t you thought about how healthy is a school lunch, well apparently more than half of the 206 Oak Ridge preschoolers ages 3 and 4-years-old were served dead mouse or rodent-like remains cooked in green beans. A teacher, distributing the meals, spotted the rodent remains while the children consumed the dish.
The closer the teacher looked she realized that it was little bits of a rodent, likely a mouse.
The company Philadelphia-based Aramark Corp. (RMK), who provides the food service management to Oak Ridge and over 420 other public and private schools around the country were said to be investigating the incident according to reports.
It was reported that the local health department in Anderson County considered the health risk so minor, they declined to come out. The health department said they were not going to take any samples or anything. Hmmm..
All of the cooked green beans and remaining cans of green beans were immediately pulled and a letter was sent home to parents.
It is believed that the rodent got into the green beans during the prepackaging process after it was cooked twice.
