Two children hospitalized after eating THC-infused candy accidentally given out by a local food bank


Last week, the Utah Food Bank handed out 63 bags of food to 63 families at a distribution point set up at the Roy Baptist Church. Inside the bags: Nerds Rope candy infused with a 400 mg dosage of THC, officials said.

In a Facebook post, police said that they believe each bag of food contained three to four packages of candy.

Law enforcement and the Utah Food Bank are reaching out to families who may have received the candy. They do not know where it came from.

An 11-year-old girl and a five-year-old girl were taken to a local hospital after eating the candy. 3 other kids also got a hold of the candy.

It is not clear what the condition of the kids are.

Police will continue to investigate the incident.
