Approximately a dozen students fell ill at a Georgia middle school when they ate candy that turned out to be contaminated. Authorities were initially concerned that the candy had been infused with THC or some other drug, after an incident in Fulton County earlier this year. However, testing determined that the candy was simply contaminated. While only one child was hospitalized, no one else suffered any serious harm as a result of the illness. Investigators believe that the candy may have been contaminated at the Hampton food bank where it came from.
