Fourth-graders at a Millard school found bugs in their blueberries Tuesday.

The blueberries were served on a fruit-and-vegetable cart during lunch at Montclair Elementary School, according to Millard Public Schools spokeswoman Rebecca Kleeman. The fruit was removed as soon as students told adults about their discovery, Kleeman said.

School officials sent a note to parents about the infested berries.

“The bugs do not pose a health threat, but are certainly unpleasing and not what we care to serve!” the note stated.

Kleeman said the blueberries were disposed of before officials could identify the type of bug.

They were “tiny,” Kleeman said.
