NEW HANOVER, Pa. (CBS) Students at a Montgomery County grade school were served pet treats by a recess aide, school officials said.
The incident happened Thursday at the New Hanover Upper Frederick Elementary School in New Hanover Township.
According to a statement from Boyertown Area School District Superintendent Richard H. Faidley, a part-time recess aide at the school distributed pet treats to approximately 75 fourth grade students.
The statement says the treats may have been misrepresented as cookies or crackers. Faidley said the school was uncertain how many students actually ate the pet treats.

Schools really have gone to the dogs ping!!
These days we are lucky it’s not pot brownies or edible underwear being served
Were they beggin’ strips?
I suppose this passes the Wookie’s menu?
My cats like those!
Gotta break them into little kitty sized pieces, though.
pet treats from China are often fatal
They have got “pet treats” at Petco that look like reject cookies. I tried a few for fun. They probably are not kept as clean, but they taste fine. I am not sure what the big deal is. Kids eat worse stuff every day.
a lot of bad jerky treats from China have been killing dogs
Kids always want to pet my dog on the head, so I ask them if I can pet them on the head and they say ‘No’.
So I tell them he doesn’t like to be petted on the head anymore than they do.
And I ask him if he wants a ‘Bacon strip’ because he won’t beg. Actually he’s very catlike, for a bulldog.
There’s really no point to any of this nonsense. I just like talking about my furry friend.
Q:What’s the difference between boogers and broccoli?
A:Kids won’t eat broccoli.
That made me lol!!!
And I enjoyed hearing it.
What are they yapping about?

I remember long ago, back in the 50’s when girls had a birthday they would wear a little corsage to school, made of ribbons and bows, and hanging from them were either Hershey Kisses, or the little Milk Bones, or Life Savers..Everything always got eaten
As modern-day school stories, go, this one is relatively tame (assuming the supplier passed the test defined as nothing happened to the kids). As one kid noted,
I thought, wow, did I really eat dog treats? I was upset that our lunch aide, that were supposed to trust, who is supposed to take care of us, would do that to us.
Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach. Those who can't teach administrate!
Time to do away with gubmint schools.
These probably tasted better than what the Wookie allows them.
My kid's better 'cause he gets Ken-L-Ration,
my kid's better than yours.
My cat thinks the dry cat food from Trader Joe’s, is a treat.
I am sick of the resentment of these depraved individuals. I hope this “aid” goes to jail.
one, what is wrong with your dog that he doesn’t like to be petted on the head
two, what is wrong with you that you would snot off to kids who want to love your dog
No information on whether or not the aid was being paid while on leave...
But, I'd take a good guess...
Just wait until the lawyers get involved...
As long as the treats weren’t made in China everything will be fine. Having eaten a few myself, both as a child and as an adult, I can say the main thing many lack to make them human treats is sugar.
Milk Bones were always good. Tasted like Rye Crisp. It just took a lot of saliva to dissolve them. Of course, neither my late Lab, two deceased Lab crosses, my present Pitador, nor my present Great Dane have any salivary deficiency. Indeed, it’s the opposite.
The label must have been written in cursive.
I tried Purina dog chow one time didn’t taste bad tasted like rye.
Our youngest child is 30 our dog is treated like a baby. I would never feed her anything that I wouldn't be willing to eat myself. I haven't heard of any recent Jerky Treat problems, but we don't feed our dog jerky treats from China because of the previous problems. We make our own dog food using recipes approved by our vet. We also give her vitamins and minerals formulated for dogs.
We were given the treats from Petco, to me they looked and tasted like stale sunshine cookies. They didn't make me sick, but I didn't think they had any nutritional value so I didn't let our dog have any of them.
They were animal crackers.
Dogs are animals, right?
