Officials apologize for 'KKK' chicken

Feb. 29, 2012 at 12:29 PM

METHUEN, Mass., Feb. 29 (UPI) -- Officials in a Massachusetts school district apologized after about 6,500 elementary school students received lunch menus featuring "KKK Chicken Tenders."

Methuen Schools Superintendent Judith Scannell said the menus were supposed to read "KK Chicken Tenders," meaning "Krispy, Krunchy," but an employee accidentally hit the "K" key a third time while typing out the documents, The (North Andover) Eagle-Tribune reported Wednesday.

"As she was typing it, she hit a third 'K.' It was an oversight," Scannell said. "I apologize for the school district if we offended anybody. This was cleaned up immediately and a new menu sent out."

Scannell said the corrected menus were sent home with students Monday.
