Albany -- Inmates at the Dougherty County jail say their dinner made them sick Thursday night.

Jail administrators say about 60 of them complained of upset stomachs. All were given Pepto Bismol. The inmates ate stew.

The health department will check to see if it could have sickened the inmates. Dougherty Co. Environmental Health's Jim Pericaud said " we are doing a very preliminary inspection. We will be doing an inspection of the kitchen area. We will be interviewing the inmates to get a statement from them. And also collecting some food samples for analysis."

 It'll be about a week before they get the test results.
