MUSKOGEE, Okla. -- Students post a disturbing video on social media of spiders all over their food tray at Muskogee High School.

It was caught on camera during breakfast on Tuesday.

A sophomore was peeling the banana he got from the school cafeteria only to find some unwanted guests on his food.

You can see in the video sophomore Kristen Oliver took, her friend Gatlan Morris's plate crawling with tiny spiders.

Morris discovered a web outside the banana and also noticed them in his cereal.

He claims he ingested spiders in his cereal before noticing them.

The two confronted a cafeteria worker about the insects.

They say she offered him another tray but he refused.

This is the only food some of these kids get and I know they’re not going to want to eat something that’s infested with bugs and they’re going to go hungry then. I just want awareness and I just want the people in charge of the food to see this and just be careful of what they’re giving children at the high school," said Morris.

We reached out to Muskogee Public Schools about the incident. 

We received a response from the Food Service Director, Kim Hall, saying:

"The young man that received the banana took it to the cafeteria manager and she apologized to him, several times, for the problem. This was an isolated incident. It's produce. Unfortunately, I have no control over Mother Nature."
