LITTLE ROCK, ARK. (AP) - Officials in Arkansas say all 10 children who drank windshield wiper fluid last week at a home day care center are out of the hospital and doing fine.

State human services agency spokeswoman Julie Munsell said Monday that the last of the youngsters was released Friday, the day after the center’s owner mistook the blue liquid as Kool-Aid.

Munsell says daycare center owner Carolyn Bynum was distraught over what Bynum called a “horrible mistake.”

Munsell said her agency is investigating whether Bynum violated the terms of her license by having more than 10 full-time children in her care. Officials said 12 children were present but two of them may have arrived after school.

Bynum voluntarily gave up her license Friday.
