The CDC, the Philadelphia Health Department, and the Philadelphia Fire Department checked them out, the report said.
In a statement, Emiratesconfirmed that "about 10 passengers" on the Dubai to NY flight had become ill, adding that the appearance of health authorities at the scene was "a precaution".

Phillips said earlier the flight had stopped in Mecca, which is experiencing a flu outbreak. Another nine refused medical attention.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says about 100 of the 520 people aboard the plane had complained of illness, including cough and fever.

Ten people who were sickened on a Dubai-to-New York flight-from-hell tested positive for some form of flu or cold virus, city health officials revealed Thursday.
After spending about an hour or more on the tarmac, everyone on the flight filled out CDC paperwork, deplaned individually, and allowed medical personnel to take their temperatures.
