Students at Sheehan High School have received a little extra protein in their fruit cups, and their parents aren’t happy about it.
Several students posted pictures online of fruit worms that they’ve discovered in their school lunch fruit cups in recent weeks, prompting school officials to launch an investigation into the problem, the Record-Journal reports.
School food services director Sharlene Wong confirmed that a single fruit worm was found in one fruit cup, and it was sent to a lab for testing, but called the issue an “isolated incident.”
“It was a fruit worm that was found in the cupped fruit,” Wong wrote, according to the news site. “The distributor was contacted and a (quality assurance) review started. The company came to pick up the worm and the supposed fruit cup it was in. My understanding is that it is being sent to a lab for testing.”
