Van Wert County Mother Finds Needle In Child’s Halloween Candy


By: Debbie Campbell

With Halloween fast approaching, now is a good time to remind everyone to check your children’s candy before they eat it.  In Van Wert, Ohio, a mother found a needle inside one of the pieces of candy her child received.  The packaging did not identify what type of candy was inside but was in a clear package that simply stated, “Not labeled for individual retail sale.”

Some important safety tips for candy this Halloween:

  • Children should not eat any candy until they get home and their parents have had time to inspect it
  • Parents should inspect every piece of candy
  • Do not eat candy if it is not in the original wrapper or looks like it has been tampered with
  • If you notice anything suspicious please contact the local authorities.

Please have a fun and safe Halloween.
