SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Officials say a Utah school cafeteria manager and a district supervisor have been placed on leave during an investigation of why lunches were taken from students who owed money on food accounts.

Salt Lake City School District Spokesman Jason Olsen said Friday he could not identify or offer further details on the workers because of personnel privacy issues.

Olsen has said lunches were seized from about 32 students on Tuesday and they were instead given milk and fruit.

The district has apologized to outraged parents and says it was working to ensure a similar incident didn't happen again.

Officials say the meals were taken after a district official arrived at Uintah (Yoo-IN-tah) Elementary to investigate a large number of overdue lunch accounts.
