KENNETT SQUARE, Pa. — Police in the Philadelphia area are investigating reports of needles found in Halloween candy.

According to a Facebook post, a “needle type item was found inside five wrapped Twix bars given to four different children.”

The reports came from a man who allegedly saw a separate Facebook post that said their child’s Snickers had needles in it, WPVI reports.

That’s when the man decided to check his own children’s candy, and reportedly found needles in theirs, as well.

Police say they are unsure if the candy was deliberately tampered with or if there was a mishap during distribution.

The investigation is ongoing.


Police urge parents to be vigilant in checking all candy before their kids eat it.
