PRINCETON (WVVA) - A Mercer County principal has responded after a photo of undercooked chicken served at his school Tuesday spread on social media.

The photo began spreading on Facebook Monday evening, claiming the undercooked meat was served to students at Princeton Middle School.

Tuesday morning, school principal Danny Buckner confirmed to WVVA News that a small number of students were served undercooked chicken Monday.

As soon as the discovery was made, the undercooked meat was disposed of and the affected children were served an alternate meal.

Buckner said that Mercer County Schools' Child Nutrition Supervisor Pam Reed was notified after the incident and will be at the school during lunch Tuesday.

Buckner said the No. 1 priority is the safety of the students.

WVVA's Kristen Conner will have more reaction to this story tonight on WVVA News at 5 and 6.
