Kid Finds Razor Blade In Candy After Trick-Or-Treating

It’s the horror story we’ve all been told since we were kids. A bad person who has it out for kids puts something in their trick-or-treat candy to get revenge. When I was a kid, there was a chiropractor who’d run our candy through his x-ray machine and then after he looked it over, my mom would take a second look. I can’t stress to you how important it is to check and double check your kid’s Halloween candy because you just never know.

A 12 year-old boy named Matthew Hernley found a razor blade in a package of M&M’s while trick-or-treating in Scottdale, Pennsylvania and a police officer told ABC, “The package did not appear to be tampered with and we think this is probably is a manufacturing issue.”

Mars M&M’s says, “Food safety and product quality are of paramount importance to Mars. We were very disturbed to learn that a consumer had a product safety issue within our M&M’S Funsize packaging. We will continue to investigate to better understand the nature of this incident and work with the local authorities, if needed.”

While this case appears to be isolated to a manufacturing issue, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. So do your kids a favor and make sure to check their candy tonight before you let them dig in.
