Nine Ogden High School cheerleaders are accused of hazing classmates by covering them in ketchup, mustard and peanut butter.

The nine were suspended for one to five days, depending on their involvement, reports KUTV-Channel 2. Some of the accused missed the Ogden High prom due to the suspension.

The episode happened in the first week of May. The senior cheerleaders took incoming cheerleaders to a park. The girls were blindfolded then covered in the condiments, KUTV reported. One girl had to be treated for a peanut allergy.

KUTV reported the hazing is still under investigation and criminal charges are possible.
