However, students at Satz Middle School and Holmdel High School could buy it on campus. Several middle school students were sickened on Friday.

The Asbury Park Press  reports the school district’s food service provider has removed a manager pending an investigation. Chartwells School Dining Services also has removed the Marley product.

In a statement posted on the school website, Chartwells wrote, “We sincerely regret that this product was sold and that students had an adverse reaction to it,” the statement said. “Chartwells takes great pride and care in partnering with our school communities to provide the best school dining experience possible and we take this situation very seriously.”

The company issued a statement in which it said it takes this situation very seriously.

It’s unclear what the students’ symptoms were.
