The Tampa police investigation of a case involving meat tainted with LSD has come to an end, the Tampa Bay Times reports. 

In March, a family of four went to St. Joseph’s Hospital showing signs of poisoning, but when police tested the steak the family had for lunch, they found it had been tainted with the hallucinogenic drug, the Times reports.
According to the Times, investigators worked for eight months to find the source of the drug in the meat, but after finding no answers, they opted to close the case.
