School district officials said the vegetable was pulled immediately from the Joliet school's lunch menu when the situation was discovered.

Bug-infested broccoli being served to students at Troy Middle School in Joliet was immediately pulled from the cafeteria menu upon being discovered Friday, school district officials said.

An adult who spotted the situation alerted cafeteria workers at the 5800 W. Theodore St. school, Troy School District 30C Supt. Don White told the Joliet Herald News. It's not known if it was consumed by any of the students, he said.

“There’s potential that we could have served it to kids,” White said. “Some of them eat broccoli.”

Parents were notified of the situation. The vegetable was only served during teh seventh-grade lunch period, White told the newspaper.

Who's the Einstein that orders broccoli for kids? Carrots, Corn or even Green Beans would be a better choice. When I was in school they served Pea Soup. Yep, you guessed it. It all went right in the garbage!!!

Believe it or not, some parents are smart enough to encourage their kids to eat broccoli at an early age and they like it. Why are there always some people who criticize no matter what the subject?

My girls when young ate broccoli. Little tree's are what they called it. Bottom line no matter what veggie is being served, the cooks should take notice of what they are washing and preparing. Anything out of the ordinary should immediately be removed.

Jax- Moochelle prefers to stuff her piehole with shrimp and and lobster at the taxpayer's expense while hanging out with her Nubian princess buddy Beyonce- nothing is too good for First Lady Chewbacca.
