JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – After 11 students at Stilwell Academy for Military Leadership reported the milk served with their Monday breakfast was curdled, the school's food service provider discarded all the milk, Duval County schools reported.
Chartwells, which runs food service for the district, said in a statement that cafeteria workers learned the cooler where a crate of milk was stored had been unplugged for part of the weekend and temperature checks were not conducted.
"While this is an isolated incident, we recognize this is unacceptable and sincerely apologize to students who were served this milk," Chartwells wrote in their statement. "There’s nothing more important to us than the health and safety of our students and the quality of the food we serve, so we are replacing all milk with a fresh shipment tomorrow (Tuesday) morning."
In addition, Chartwell will have a manager on site Tuesday to retrain our staff and revisit procedures so this problem won't happen again.
