(CBS/AP) "Octomom" Nadya Suleman was paid a visit from police and California child welfare officials on Tuesday after a complaint that her 14 children were living in filth.

Officials say they did not find evidence that the children are in any danger.

La Habra police Sgt. Daniel Barnes says officers and Orange County Department of Family and Children's Services officials examined Suleman's home in Southern California on Tuesday and did not find anything unusual.

According to TMZ, Suleman's hairstylist told police that the house was a mess and that there was only one working toilet in the home.

Barnes told City News Service that someone reported filth in the home.

The 36-year-old Suleman became known as Octomom after she gave birth to eight babies in January 2009. They are the world's longest-living octuplets.
