ORCUTT, California (KRON) — A Santa Maria Valley mom discovered mold in her children’s school lunch.
And now, she wants answers.
Linda Lujan said her 10-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter arrived home from school, with moldy bacteria-loaded apple juice in their lunch boxes.
She says the duo purchases their lunch every day from school.
One box had expired on the fourth, the same day it was sent home with Lujan’s son.
The second box expired Oct. 28, six days before it was given to her children.
Now, the mother of two is questioning the entire school district.
The distributor of the juice, Dean Foods, released a statement
It says the sell-by date is a reliable guideline, provided the juice has been stored properly.
The company says it’s working with the school to figure out what happened.
