    A preschool in Hawaii is taking a closer look at its snack policy after three children took sips of Pine-Sol. 

    Officials say a classroom assistant at a Honolulu preschool mistook the household cleaner for apple juice. Paramedics were called to the Kilohana United Methodist Church Preschool to evaluate three girls, ages 4 and 5, on Tuesday morning. 

    The preschool says only sips were taken before the lead teacher realized the liquid was not apple juice. 

    Paramedics found no signs of trauma or sickness, and the girls' parents declined to take them to the hospital. 

    Inspectors say the assistant picked up the container of yellow-brown liquid off a cleanup cart in the kitchen and poured it into cups. The cleaner was its original container and properly labeled.
