Trick-or-treater finds blade in Halloween candy, claims mom

(Washington County Sheriff's Office) 

Oregon police were investigating a report that a girl found a loose blade in a candy bar she retrieved while trick-or-treating on Tuesday night.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said a “concerned mother” from Beaverton contacted officers on Wednesday, claiming that her 13-year-old daughter found a blade in a small packaged candy bar, FOX12 reported.

The mother told officers she took her three children trick-or-treating Tuesday night in the Beaverton area. 

The blade seemed to be from a pencil sharpener, deputies said. It was not clear if the wrapper was fully sealed before the young girl opened it.

Officials said there were no other reports of blades found in candy, but warned parents to be on the lookout.

“The sheriff's office reminds parents to be vigilant and educate their children about inspecting all Halloween candy,” the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.
