CHICAGO, IL & ALBUQUERQUE, NM – The kitchen at one school in Chicago had to be shut down after someone found rat and mouse droppings in the food.

School officials say the food appeared to have been chewed up by the animal.

Two students were taken to the hospital after they got sick, but are expected to be okay.

From animal droppings to Hot Cheetos, in New Mexico, one health teacher is trying to ban the popular snack. The teacher says the snack is unhealthy for the children and only leads to poor eating habits and weight gain. School janitors are also seeing red because they’re left cleaning up red fingerprints everywhere from the dye in the Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.
