Indiana health officials warn about candy after several people get sick

INDIANA (WFIE) -

A candy warning from Indiana health officials who say several people have become ill after eating original Skittles.

Preliminary tests showed the candy sold at a Richmond, Indiana store contained "unconfirmed chemical substances."

Investigators don't know if the package was tampered with until more test results come back.

The Skittles lot numbers of the contaminated packages are:

  • 08JUL14 023
  • 01DEC14 023

Health officials say if you have purchased Skittles with those lot numbers DO NOT EAT them. 

Unopened packages, or open packages with product still in the bag, should be placed in an envelope and held in a safe place until recovered by the Indiana State Police. 

Contact the Indiana State Police Pendleton Post at 800-527-4752 (The 800 number only works in Indiana). 

Please provide the officer with your name, phone number and address where the Skittles are being held and arrangements will be made to retrieve them as soon as possible.
