Why Did a Tennessee Grade School Ban Pork?
A Tennessee elementary school banned students from eating ham sandwiches, BLT's and anything else made with pork, but eventually lifted the ban after parents complained.
Third grade teachers at Sunset Elementary School in Brentwood, Tenn. sent home an "Approved Snack List" for the school year and it specifically banned anything that comes from a pig.
"No meats containing pork," read the memorandum. "Starting Monday, August 12, 2013 your child must provide their own snack from the above approved snack list."
