A teacher at Kilohana United Methodist Church Preschool in Honolulu, Hawaii was left mortified after it was revealed that her students were given Pine-Sol instead of apple juice during snack time. The teacher, who has not been named, told local officials that on Nov. 27, the morning snacks were prepared by the classroom assistant in the kitchen, according to an inspection report by the Hawaii Sate Department of Health. When the assistant came back to the classroom from the kitchen with the dry crackers and “juice,” the teacher realized something wasn’t right. “The classroom teacher smelled that it was not apple juice and stopped the students from drinking it,” the report states. While Pine-sol and apple juice are similar in color, the report claims the liquid the assistant poured was in “the original Pine-Sol container” and was properly labeled.
