Teacher Assistant ‘Accidently’ Serves Pine-Sol Instead of Orange Juice To Pre-Schoolers

There is no way that was an accident. The smell of pine sol is strong; you can not mix that up with apple juice.

Accidents do happen, that is for sure. However, I do not see how this could even remotely be an accident. It is impossible not to tell the difference way before serving it to a child!

It is possible for a person not to have a sense of smell, right? I’m guessing this may have been the case considering it was caught from the smell of it by another teacher. But storing chemicals with food is a violation of health code which I hope the school was cited for!

An inspection report said an assistant at Kilohana United Methodist Church Preschool took the Pine-Sol off a kitchen cart while preparing snacks and filled cups with it. A classroom teacher smelled the Pine-Sol and stopped students from drinking it.

KHON reports that emergency medical services evaluated three students who took small sips of the cleaning product, but none of them needed treatment.

Andrea Ganote, whose child was in the class, said she was shocked a mistake like that could happen.

“Stunned, absolutely stunned,” Ganote said. “My first reaction was wondering why they would store the two in the same part of the building.”

The State Health Department said about a dozen people accidentally ingest Pine-Sol each year, and about half of them are kids.

The article said the pine sol was on a cart. Maybe someone else was using the pine sol at the same time as the supposed accident. I still don’t understand how you can mix up apple juice and pine sol. I feel it is 100% the aide’s fault.
