Halloween candy that made parents sick tested positive for meth, sheriff says

ALOHA, Ore. – Two Oregon parents were sickened after eating their children’s Halloween candy, which later tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

The children didn’t eat any of the Sour Patch Kids candy they collected while trick-or-treating in Aloha Wednesday evening, according to officials.

The parents told deputies the candy appeared sealed when they ate it Halloween evening. After feeling ill the next day, they  called 911 and were taken to an area hospital for evaluation.

Officials said in a news release that deputies performed a field test of the gummy candy, which tested positive for methamphetamine.

Deputies placed the candy into evidence and the sheriff’s office posted a warning to other families on social media.

It’s not yet known which house gave out the candy.
