It appears tainted cheese is to blame for making nearly two dozen suburban school children sick.Ambulances were called to Woodgate School in Matteson around lunchtime Friday when several children began complaining of upset stomachs and nausea.

Twenty-one fourth and fifth grade students ended up being treated.

School officials suspect moldy cheese that was served on pretzels caused the children to become ill.
