Three US siblings whose names have Nazi connotations - and whose family made headlines after a bakery refused to put one of the children's names on a cake - have been placed in the custody of the state.

Holland Township Police Sergeant John Harris says workers from the state Division of Youth and Family Services on Tuesday removed three-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell and his younger sisters, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell from their home on Tuesday, The Express-Times of Easton, Pennsylvania, reported.

Harris says family services did not tell police the reason the children were removed.

Agency spokeswoman Kate Bernyk says it does not comment on specific cases.

The children and their parents, Heath and Deborah Campbell, received attention last month when a supermarket bakery refused to put Adolf Hitler Campbell's name on a birthday cake.
