Methuen Fixes ‘KKK Chicken’ Typo On School Lunch Menu

METHUEN (CBS) – An awful mistake that most people didn’t notice quickly became the talk of the town in Methuen this week.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Laurie Kirby reports.

The menu for school lunches released Monday was supposed to read “KK Chicken Tenders,” short for Krispy and Krunchy.

But the woman who typed the menu it accidentally added a third “k.”

KKK is the abbreviation for the Ku Klux Klan, a white supremacist, racist organization.

No one caught the typo and the menu was sent out to about 6,500 students in four grammar schools.

School officials republished the menu after someone pointed out the mistake to the media Tuesday.

The superintendent told the Eagle-Tribune the worker who made the mistake is an “exemplary employee.”
