Boobytrapped candy is the fear of every parent on Halloween, forcing them to look over their children’s haul with an electron microscope to determine if anything has been tampered with.
But has anybody ever found anything lodged in a chocolate bar, or a poisonous substance injected into a box of raisins? The whole thing is an urban legend, right?
Looks like a Thorold, Ontario parent may have stumbled upon the real deal this Halloween!
Niagara Regional Police responded to a report from a concerned mother on Sunday morning who claims that her child found a hard object in a Kit Kat Bar they had just begun consuming.
Turns out they were nibbling on what appears to be the razor from a disposable shaver (blade and chocolate bar shown above). Despite the fact that the blade did enter the child’s mouth, no damage was done.
Police suggest the package may have been tampered with. They’re reminding parents to thoroughly check candy packaging for any breaches or signs of being maliciously handled.
Do you think somebody deliberately shoved a razor blade in the chocolate bar? How thoroughly do you scan your kid’s treats for tampering?
One comment posted to the story HERE in the Hamilton Spectator recommends that parents scan the candy with a METAL DETECTOR!
