Toronto trick-or-treater finds razor blade in candy bar
TORONTO – Police issued a new warning Saturday after another child found a razor blade concealed in Halloween candy.
Police received a call on Friday afternoon after an 11-year-old girl bit into a chocolate bar and found a razor blade hidden in the candy. She was not injured.
Police say the girl went trick-or-treating in the area bounded by Dundas Street, College Street, Manning Avenue and Palmerston Avenue.
This is at least the eighth reported incident of tampered Halloween candy in Ontario in 2015.
In other incidents, children have found razor blades, a nail, a thumb tack and a blade from a pencil sharpener embedded in their treats. No children have been reported injured.
Anyone with information on these incidents is asked to contact their local police or Crime Stoppers.
Additionally, police encourage children and parents to examine candy wrappers and discard any that appear tampered with in any way.
