Two Georgia middle school students are facing aggravated-assault charges after serving a cake containing dangerous ingredients to their classmates. The two 13-year-old girls at the 1,300-student East Cobb Middle School in Marietta brought the cornbread cake, which law-enforcement officials said contained bleach, glue, and other household toxins, to school on Nov. 16, and served it to at least 15 of their classmates, who became ill.
