Dutch Fork teacher, students become ill after eating cupcakes

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Several students at Dutch Fork High School became ill after eating a batch of cupcakes made by two students, according to Lexington-Richland 5 officials.

Spokesman Buddy Price says one teacher and 14 students complained of being mildly ill after they ate the batch.

The students' parents were notified of the sickness and were allowed to come pick them up from school.

All those who complained of the illness are feeling better now.

Price says the district doesn't know if the cupcakes were tampered with to produce a sickness or if they were just a bad batch.
