NINETY SIX, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenwood County District 52 has responded with action after they confirmed moldy bread was served during lunch Friday at Ninety Six High School.

Several people messaged FOX Carolina copies of photos showing a sandwich with what appeared to be a green spot visible inside the bread component after someone had taken a bite

Assistant Superintendent Wally Hall said he was notified about the photos Friday afternoon and was beginning to look into it.

On Friday evening, Hall released the following statement on behalf of the school district:

Today, at Ninety Six High School, we had 2 students receive a bun that was molded. Those students were told to get another tray and we apologized to them. As soon as the date on the package was identified, packages with that date were disposed. After lunch a corrective action and retraining meeting was held with the middle and high school nutrition staff lead by the nutrition services director. They reviewed and discussed the proper procedures for inspecting food as it was being prepared, especially bread. This session also reviewed how to check for dates on food. However, in this case the mold appeared to be inside the bun and would have probably been missed during preparation. The current ordering procedures for the department may have contributed to this because of the need to order nearly a week in advance for bread products.  Therefore, the nutrition services department intends to changed vendors for its bread service as soon as the transition can occur as measure to prevent this happening in the future.
