Pregnant mom, kids and boyfriend sickened by LSD-tainted meat

Police, health and agriculture officials investigating

Police in Tampa, Florida say a woman who was 9 months pregnant, her two young daughters and her boyfriend were all sickened after eating meat tainted with LSD.

The family had eaten bottom round steak bought from a local Wal-Mart. The store has pulled the product from its store and turned it over to police for testing.

Local police, along with county health officials and state and federal agriculture officials, are looking into how the drug wound up in the family's dinner. The family's oven is also being tested.

Ronnie Morales felt sick not long after dinner on Monday night. Police say he was dizzy, had a hard time breathing and was experiencing hallucinations. Morales' girlfriend, Jessica Rosado drove him to a local hospital.

Once there, Rosado started to feel woozy too and doctors induced labour in her ninth month of pregnancy. She delivered a healthy baby boy. Eventually Rosado's daughters, aged six and seven, also suffered hallucinations and were also admitted to hospital.

The family is now back at home good condition.
