Fostoria, Ohio (WJW) – Police in Fostoria, Ohio, say they are investigating a candy that was tampered with and distributed during trick-or-treating.
A citywide trick-or-treat event was held in Fostoria on Saturday, October 30.
Police say a sewing needle was found in two pieces of candy, which was confirmed by X-ray.
“While we know there are only two bars of candy, we take this very seriously and are appalled that anyone might go so crazy that they want to harm children in our community,” said Police Chief Keith Loreno.
Police say they don’t know which house or street distributed the contaminated candy.
As a result, ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital offers parents free X-ray pictures of the candy.
The free service is available on Mondays at the hospital.
You can pass through the main entrance from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. or from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The staff will have a portable X-ray machine to scan the candy.
Police are asking parents to alert them to any other suspicious candy.
Call them at (419) 435-8573.
