Asbury Park school gives kids spoiled milk

ASBURY PARK - Parents say several students reportedly became sick after drinking milk that was served at a school in Asbury Park.

The school district confirmed there was a mix up with some of the milk at Barack Obama Elementary School, formerly called the Bangs Avenue Elementary School.

The school district says it's aware that a shipment of milk sat in the hot sun last week. The superintendent says the milk was thrown away, but says two pints were mistakenly left behind. The delivery person apparently left the shipment outside when nobody was there to open the school door. Some of the spoiled milk was later served to students.

Aisha Kennedy, who has a 9-year-old son at the elementary school told News 12 New Jersey that her son became ill after drinking the milk. However, the superintendent says a teacher saw Kennedy's son pour the milk into his cereal, spotted the chunks and immediately threw it away.
