A Pennsylvania school district has said that an aide has been suspended after she had tricked students into eating pet treats by saying that they were cookies. There were around 75 fourth-graders at New Hanover-Upper Frederick Elementary School who were given the pet treats during recess on Thursday. There were no reports of any injuries.
Gabriel Moore, a student, told WFMZ-TV that the aide had joked at first about them being dog treats before telling the students that they were cookies. Gabriel had eaten three of the treats.
Parents were notified on Friday by Boyertown Area School District officials. They never disclosed which type the pet treats were but they said that the ingredients would only be harmful to people who have got certain food allergies.
