Cops are advising families to check their children’s Halloween treats thoroughly, and if any seems suspicious, contains material that is not original to the product or has been opened or tampered with, to not eat it.

Anyone that has located candy with embedded or foreign objects is asked to contact Durham police at 1-888-579-1520.

This follows other reported incidents of Halloween candy that were potentially tampered with across the Greater Toronto Area.
