School fined for accidentally selling soda

A Utah high school is being punished by the government.
Davis High School in the Salt Lake City area is having to pay over a whopping $15,000 in fines to the Feds because it accidentally sold soda through a vending machine during lunch.

Federal law requires the school to turn off its soda machines during the lunch period, which is 47 minutes a day. Davis High school did turn off the machines in the lunch room, however, the school didn‘t realize that there was another machine in the school bookstore that wasn’t being turned off, that's when the food police realized it and the school was hit with a $0.75 fine per student for the duration of the offense.

As a result, the school is going to cut money to fine arts programs to make up the cost.
