MIE (TR) – School board officials here are investigating how a ceramic shard ended up in a third grader’s school lunch on Friday.
The female student of Yushu Elementary School in Ise City was eating borscht, a sour Eastern European soup, when she spotted the 25-millimeter-long, 5-millimeter-thick pottery fragment in her bowl, Nippon News Network reports (Feb. 13).
