An Oregon Sheriff's Office issued a warning to parents in its area after parents got sick from eating Halloween candy that was reportedly laced with methamphetamine.

The unidentified couple fell ill after picking a bag of gummy candy, which resembled Sour Patch Kids, from their children's Halloween stash, the Washington County Sheriff's Office said.

The parents say the candy appeared to be fully sealed.

The adults were taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Deputies say tests on the candy showed the presence of meth. The remaining candy was confiscated as evidence.

Officials said no one else in the town reported getting sick from any candy. "We want you to leave it just as you have found it if you think it's been tampered with", Washington County Sheriff's Office Det.

Some neighbors who learned of the news said they were concerned. The children did not consume any candy from the wrapper in question. Mark Polovny told Portland ABC affiliate KATU. "In some cases, people take methamphetamine in a form of binging known as a 'run, ' giving up food and sleep while continuing to take the drug every few hours for up to several days", the agency stated.
