A new food vendor supplied pizza, juice boxes and fruit to a suburban Chicago school district Tuesday after children got food poisoning for a second time.
Forty-seven students, mostly at the Forest Trail Middle School in Park Forest, Ill., were sickened after eating lunch Monday in the second incident of suspected food poisoning in Elementary School District 163 in less than two weeks, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Seventeen 6th graders suffered stomach distress and were treated at hospitals after drinking funny-tasting juice 12 days earlier. District officials hired a new food vendor.
Some parents said they’ll pack a lunch each day for their children from now on.
