AISD Fixing Cafeterias After Glass Found in Food


Austin ISD is conducting repairs at 18 elementary school cafeterias after an employee found glass in the pinto beans last week at Allison Elementary School. 

"She immediately pulled the pinto beans from the tray and also from the line and called to report the incident," says AISD health supervisor Tracy Lunoff. 

Turns out the sneeze guard broke and glass fell into the food. The vendor, Moduserve, has been called in to fix them. AISD says no students were hurt, and it sent this letter to parents notifying them of the incident. It also called parents directly whose children may have eaten the pinto beans. 

These are the 18 elementary schools whose sneeze guards were removed:

  1. Williams
  2. Kocurek
  3. Kiker
  4. Sunset Valley
  5. Odom
  6. Pleasant Hill
  7. Langford
  8. Widen
  9. Dawson
  10. Sanchez
  11. Allison
  12. Jordan
  13. Ridgetop
  14. Reilly
  15. Webb
  16. Dobie
  17. Walnut Creek
  18. Doss
