ALOHA, Ore. -- Two parents in the Portland area went to the hospital after eating Halloween candy laced with meth.

Washington County Sheriff’s deputies said the parents got sick from eating Sour Patch Kids candy that their kids got while trick or treating Wednesday in Aloha.

Deputies said the parents told them the candy wrapper appeared to be fully sealed, but Detective Mark Povolny added that appearances can be deceiving.

"You could liquify the meth, put it in a syringe and then you could inject the syringe through the plastic bag," Povolny said.

They said the children did not eat the candy.

Deputies said they seized the candy and wrapper as evidence, sent it to the state crime lab, and it tested positive for meth.

The parents were taken to the hospital for evaluation.
