One Arizona high school has added another item to its list of banned substances: bottled ketchup.
One student at Basha High School in Chandler was disciplined after being caught with a ketchup bottle two days in a row. And the principal said the school called the parents of several others found with the contraband.
The smuggling began after the school cafeteria limited students to three packets of ketchup per hamburger. You can get extra packets, but they cost 25 cents each.
You also can bring your own packets. But bottled ketchup is banned because the school said it would be a health code violation.
The policy was adopted because administrators were fed up with students stomping on ketchup packets and squirting the red goo on sidewalks and hallways.
