Student food poisoning in Lamia: Hair, maggots and… feathers in school lunches

Shocking pictures of 63 children poisoned in midday meals served to Lamia school students have surfaced.

According to MEGA, which published the related photos, hair, maggots and even…feathers were found in the collected areas.

It is recalled that food was produced in the factory of the Giannitsi company, which was completely destroyed by a sudden fire.

In fact, yesterday (20/05), Staphylococcus was detected in samples of school food, as detected by the Regional Public Health Laboratory of EODY.

Hairs, worms and…feathers

In a photo document provided by MEGA, following a complaint from a parent, a portion of the food prepared and served to students by the institution can be seen containing worms.

In another photo, an apple can be seen rotting in one of the ready-to-eat packages.

Another photo shows a steamed burger, and another shows a portion of a chicken wing.

“The first picture was an apple. So it was given to the child. Six months ago. It was rotten, a rotten apple that was put inside for a child to eat,” the complaining father told Megha.

Parents of students had complained about school lunch in the past

A mother of a food poisoning victim, speaking to Megha, said, “We are not satisfied on many levels. I did not like the taste of the food, and the children had failures in their diet. There was ice on the burger. Its quality is cooked, not fresh meat. A caterpillar found in cauliflower, some bits sticking out of the bags. It was a complete disappointment even with the quality of the packaging as you cannot put hot food in plastic packaging.”
