According to NBC News, "two people who ate from a package of contaminated Skittles required hospital treatment for burning throats, cramping and diarrhea," purchased from a convenience store in Indiana.

Authorities are advising people who purchased Skittles with the lot numbers 08JUL14 023 or 01DEC14 023 not to consume the candy but to contact the Skittles maker, William Wrigley Jr. Company.

The company issues a statement saying their "first priority is safety."

An investigation is underway.
