- After obtaining results from laboratory tests on packages of Original Skittles sold in Richmond, Indiana, on March 6, the Indiana State Health Department declared the candy to be free of toxins and safe to eat.
- The tests were a follow-up to the department's warning not to eat the candy after a report that two people who ate from a package of Skittles required hospital treatment for burning throats, cramping, and diarrhea.
- The agency is continuing its investigation into what was the cause of illness for those affected.
This episode has a happy ending for the Wrigley candy company, as it was exonerated from any blame with respect to candy contamination. Happily, the candy warning did not have to turn into a full recall, as in the case of Roos Foods' cheese recall.
