Authorities are investigating a hazing incident at a Utah high school in which a student with a peanut allergy was smeared with peanut butter.
Ogden School District spokeswoman Donna Corby says nine cheerleaders at Ogden High School have been suspended after coating incoming squad members with condiments.
Corby says girls joining the squad were taken to a park May 4, supposedly to celebrate earning a spot as a cheerleader. Instead, senior cheerleaders blindfolded them and told them to do push-ups and sit-ups.
Corby says ketchup, mustard, peanut butter and pickle juice were thrown at the girls. The girls were then told to strip down to their underwear to get sprayed off.
Corby says the girl with the peanut allergy suffered a minor reaction.
The district's investigation is ongoing.
