Police are urging parents to be very thorough when checking candy acquired through trick-or-treating following another case of candy being tampered with.
Officers say on Friday, an 11-year-old girl discovered a razor blade in a chocolate bar after she bit into it, but no injuries were sustained.
The girl had gone trick-or-treating on Halloween in Little Italy, near Dundas Street, College Street, Manning Avenue and Palmerston Avenue.
It’s the third case of candy being tampered with in Toronto, after a three year old near Keele Street and Lawrence Avenue West found a needle in a chocolate bar. Another child found a thumbtack inside a chocolate bar she had collected trick or treating in Scarborough’s Beaches neighbourhood.
In Kawthra Lakes, a finishing nail was found inserted into a chocolate bar, and the blade from a pencil sharpener was found in a chocolate bar in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Anyone with information on the latest incident are asked to call police at 416-808-1400, or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-8477 (TIPS).
