By Philip Sean Curran, Staff Writer
Breakfast food that was part of a national recall was thrown out at two elementary schools where the product had been served earlier this month as part of a meals program, Princeton School District officials have said., Aunt Jemima frozen waffles were part of the voluntary recall by Pinnacle Foods Inc., amid concerns that those and other Aunt Jemima products might have been contaminated with the bacteria Listeria, which was found at the company’s plant. The waffles had been at Community Park and Riverside elementary schools, some of which had been served earlier this month at both schools, the district said. No one, however, reported being sick, the district said., Princeton was notified May 8 by its food contractor, Nutri-Serve Food Management Inc., with the products that should be thrown away, a district spokeswoman said Monday. The district would be refunded for the cost of the discarded food, the spokeswoman said., “The recall did not include Waffle Sticks, which were served to students (the week of May 9),” read a statement posted on the district website., Listeria can make people sick with fever and diarrhea, according to the federal government.
