The Niagara Regional Police are warning parents to always check young children’s candy as a razor blade was found in a chocolate bar in the Niagra region.
According to the Niagara Regional Police, the blade was found by a child after he finished trick-or-treating in north St. Catharines and Thorold.
The parents of the victim stated that their child “felt” something hard into the candy after taking a bite out of it.
The child immediately stopped eating the candy bar and found a slender metallic blade inside, according to the statement issued by the police.
Despite eating a portion of the bar, the child sustained no injuries and is apparently fine, despite being a little shocked. Further, police have still not ruled officially if the package had been tampered with.
If you or anyone you know experienced finding any tampered with candy, police are urging you to come forward and report it to the Niagara Regional Police at Niagara Regional Police Service Station, 68 Church St., (905) 688-4111.
