The remains once belonged to the body of one of the student's grandparents, police said.

Police in California are investigating claims that cookies brought to a high school and shared with multiple students contained cremated human remains.

A female student at Da Vinci Charter Academy, a public charter high school, took the baked goods to school on Oct 4 and gave them to at least nine other students, said Lieutenant Paul Doroshov from the Davis Police Department.

The cookies however, have not yet been tested to see if there were real remains inside.

They say there's nothing better than grandma's cooking, but what about cookies made from the ashes of a dead grandmother?

"This is so unconventional", Mr Doroshov said, adding that "more research" was required to figure out whether people could be charged and what they could be charged with.

"It involves juveniles so there's various options as to what can be done with it", Doroshov noted.

I don't know who wrote that or who said that or who thinks that, but that isn't the case here. Maybe he's confused, I don't know.

"It blew my mind", said the boy's mother, who asked to remain anonymous.

The student's parents are outraged that they had not been notified about the incident sooner. "And I was really, I was kind of horrified".

The David Joint Unified School District also issued a statement suggesting criminal charges were probably not on the agenda.

According to the boy's mother, her son told a school administrator about the cookies who instructed him "not to tell anyone".

Since the incident, the family says nothing has been sent to parents about it.

Davis Joint Unified School District Spokesperson Maria Clayton released a statement that read in part, "While we can not comment on confidential student matters, the physical and social -emotional safety of our students is our first priority".

The student says, "After that he (the principal) told me not to tell anyone". Right now, police and the school will confirm that a investigation is underway. "We have responded appropriately and in the most respectful and dignified way possible". "When wrongdoing is found to have occurred, disciplinary measures are applied and at the same time measures are taken to fix the harm within the community".
