At the end of January, an elementary school school lunch menu in Kameoka City, Kyoto Prefecture, was served with scallops. According to the Kameoka City School Lunch Center, bivalves are rarely served in school lunches due to the risk of food poisoning, and ''this is probably the first time the child has eaten scallops.'' The reason this happened was due to a problem that has been going on since last year.
