Item #: SCP-942
Object Class: Safe
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-942-2 is to be stored in a locked safe-deposit box at Site ██'s Low Risk Object Storage. Access is to be limited to those with written clearance from personnel with security clearance level 3 or higher.
Any staff affected by SCP-942-1 must remain within Foundation controlled facilities at all times, and are not to come in contact with civilians. Any civilians affected by SCP-942-1 are to be recruited, terminated or [REDACTED] on a case-by-case basis.
If additional instances of SCP-942-2 are encountered, the object is to be retrieved as soon as possible and the surrounding area checked for affected subjects.
Description: SCP-942-1 appear to be colored gumballs of standard (2.53cm) size. From the moment an instance of SCP-942-1 is ingested, the consumer's bodily fluids will take on the appearance of blood the moment they leave the body of the subject. The fluids will coagulate like normal blood and are indistinguishable from blood by sight, smell, or touch. However, observation by means other than the aformentioned, such as chemical analysis or infrared spectroscopy, will indicate the original substance. It should be noted that other than coagulation the fluids show no anomalous reactions or chemical processes. The subject's actual blood, and the properties of bodily fluids while remaining inside the body appear to be unaffected. The nasal cavity and the surface of the eye are not entirely free from the effect, resulting in the appearance of blood-shot eyes, tears of blood, and a constant low-intensity nosebleed in affected subjects. Regions prone to sweating such as toes or armpits will be covered near-perpetually in crusts of dried blood, and affected subjects have reported considerable discomfort during urination.
Subjects have been known to suffer panic attacks after exposure. It is believed these are reactions to the effects of the SCP, and not caused by the SCP itself. This includes panic attacks where subjects will attempt to remove the excess blood, in some cases leading to severe bodily harm and dehydration.
SCP-942-2 is a small bubble gum dispenser for home use of a model produced by [REDACTED]. SCP-942-2 is unremarkable in all respects other than its apparently infinite supply of SCP-942-1. Preliminary testing has shown that the dispenser can be damaged normally, due to the ease of containment, destructive testing has been halted to avoid negating the anomalous effetcs. Research into how the dispenser refills its supply of SCP-942-2 is ongoing. The words “Try something different today! Sweet and candy-red!” are engraved on the underside.
