Principal: Raw chicken ‘a mistake’; no children sickened

PRINCETON — A school official said raw chicken served to students at Princeton Middle School Monday was “a mistake.”

“We had a problem yesterday at lunch, a pan of chicken was pulled before it was cooked. Only about 20 children were served the chicken and it was only about five minutes before school cooks noticed and made the children throw away the chicken and gave them another option,” principal Danny Buckner said.

The school has not had any reports of anyone being sick, Buckner added.

An image of the raw chicken went viral on local social media sites Monday evening.
