How to decode \u0026 in url

I am requesting JSON from a remote server and one of the url properties has \u0026 in place of the ampersand in the url's query string.

For example instead of:
http://mydomain.com/getvideo?id=101&foo=bar

It is returning
http://mydomain.com/getvideo?id=101\u0026foo=bar

What kind of encoding is this? How can decode the url so Roku can play it?

What are you using to decode your JSON?

If you use the JSONDecoder parser in GitHub (see this post: http://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=49609) then it should automatically change the \u0026 into an ampersand.
