Mass. school quickly fixes racist typo on menu
Mass. school fixes lunch menu with apparently accidental reference to racist organization
By The Associated Press

METHUEN, Mass. (AP) ' School officials in a Massachusetts town are apologizing for sending home a lunch menu that listed KKK Chicken Tenders as an option.

About 6,500 students in four Methuen (muh-THOO'-in) schools went home with new menus Tuesday, a day after the original one mistakenly listed chicken seemingly in the style of the Ku Klux Klan.

Superintendent Judith Scannell tells The Eagle-Tribune (http://bit.ly/wDh3Am) the menu was supposed to list KK Chicken Tenders, with the KK standing for a creatively spelled "Krispy, Krunchy," but an employee mistakenly hit the "K'' key one too many times.



Scannell apologized if anyone was offended. The food service director got one complaint.

A student pointed out to WCVB-TV that it there would've been no issue if officials just spelled the words correctly, with the letter C.
