More than two dozen school children were taken to area hospitals Wednesday following an incident on Chicago's West Side.

Around 11:30 a.m., 31 students from Cameron Elementary School were taken to be checked out at several hospitals. The students complained of skin irritations following a demonstration with pies made of shaving cream.

The students -- believed to be in 4th or 5th grades -- were taken to the hospitals as a precaution. There are no reports of trauma or injury.
