The Washington County Sheriff's Office says deputies responded to a home in Aloha Thursday when they got a call of adults feeling ill after eating candy.

A couple and their children went trick-or-treating on Halloween night, and the parents ingested Sour Patch Kids the next day.

Parents who had eaten the candy alerted the police after they got sick when they ate the candy. The parents told deputies that the candy, which resembled Sour Patch Kids, was in a wrapper that appeared to be fully sealed prior to being opened.

Deputies say tests on the candy showed the presence of meth.

- Two parents were recovering at an OR hospital on Thursday after unknowingly eating Halloween candy laced with methamphetamine, authorities said. The remaining candy was confiscated as evidence.

"Leave it be. Don't throw it away".

The sheriff's office said it received no other reports regarding Halloween candy being altered or tampered with and are not aware of such reports being made to any neighboring law enforcement agencies.

Officials said no one else in the town reported getting sick from any candy.

The sheriff's office said it wasn't clear as of yet which house the family obtained the tainted candy from.
