“This isn’t apple juice!” [Warning: autostart video]
Students were mistakenly served Pine-Sol instead of apple juice, according to a report released by the [Hawaii] state Department of Health.
It happened Tuesday at Kilohana United Methodist Church Preschool.
In the report, the school’s director said morning snacks were being prepared by a classroom assistant in the kitchen. The snacks consisted of dry crackers and juice.
The assistant saw the yellow/brown-colored liquid container on a clean-up cart in the kitchen, and returned to the classroom with the crackers and container with liquid. The assistant poured the liquid into cups as the classroom teacher tended to students. The classroom teacher realized it was not apple juice based on its smell, and stopped the students from drinking it.
The assistant has since left her job at the preschool, which makes me wonder if this was a last act of revenge.
Oh, and be careful around Old English furniture polish, which appears to be apple, lemon-lime, or strawberry. It is, of course, none of those things.
