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.
