(Scroll down for video) Children and parents freaked out after live worms were found crawling in food at school, officials in Florida said.

The principal of the Killarney Elementary School in Winter Park, said that he ordered an inspection after a child found a dead worm in his food.

During the inspection, exterminators found live worms crawling in uncooked rice.

Orange County Public Schools officials said that as a result of the findings, all the schools in the district discarded their rice in order to ensure that the incident won’t repeat itself.

Investigators believe that the rice became infested while it was with the vendor as the worms were discovered less than 24 hours after delivery.
