JAY, Fla. (AP) - Officials at a Florida Panhandle elementary school are rounding up risque 'slap' bracelets that were mistakenly given as prizes for students' fundraising efforts to buy classroom supplies.
Jay Elementary School officials say children were given the bracelets that slap shut around their wrists on Tuesday. The school was notified by a parent whose child found the picture of a scantily clad woman after tearing the fabric on the bracelet.
The Pensacola News Journal reports about 160 bracelets were handed out. Only four bracelets had the X-rated images under the fabric coverings. School officials exchanged the bracelets for yo-yos on Thursday.
Principal Danny Carnley calls the incident unfortunate and says the situation was handled professionally.
The bracelets were supplied by a Tennessee-based fundraising program and were made from recycled material.
