Halloween candy safety

The Pennsylvania State Police are reminding parents to check their children’s candy cache when the kids get back from Trick-or-Treating. The adults should be aware of anything out of the ordinary in terms of wrapping or odor to help assure the candies aren’t tainted with anything or are otherwise dangerous.

Specifically, adults should check for unusual candy packaging, such as homemade, plastic bag packages; read the packaging of name brand candy, as it is sometimes difficult to distinguish the difference based on appearance alone; wear vinyl or non-latex gloves when checking the candy and immediately contact your local police department if you believe that your child has received drug-laden candy or candy with foreign objects.
