Skittles cleared in Indiana sicknesses

RICHMOND, IN. (AP) - The Indiana State Health Department has given Skittles candy a clean bill of health after two children became ill and were hospitalized Wednesday.

Health officials conducted lab tests on some packages of original Skittles from a Richmond, Indiana convenience store.

A mother bought the candy there and gave it to her two children.  They later suffered from burning throats, cramping and diarrhea and got medical treatment.

Health department technicians took bags of the candy off that same shelf for testing, but determined the bags contained no unusual chemical substances or toxins and were safe to eat.

They're still investigating what made those kids sick.

Most of the Skittles sold in the U.S. are made at the Mars chocolate plant in Waco.
