HOLMDEL TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Officials have removed a relaxation drink named after reggae icon Bob Marley after several students at a New Jersey school were sickened.
Marley’s Mellow Mood is promoted to reduce stress. The drink’s nutrition facts say it may cause drowsiness and is not intended for children.
However, students at Satz Middle School and Holmdel High School could buy it on campus. Several middle school students were sickened on Friday.
The company issued a statement in which it said it takes this situation very seriously.
It’s unclear what the students’ symptoms were.
