Another needle was found in a chocolate bar shelled out to a trick-or-treater in a Mississauga neighbourhood on Halloween.
Peel Regional Police say the second such tainted candy bar reported since Oct. 31 was handed out in Lorne Park – near Indian Rd. and Indian Grove.
On Monday, police revealed the first chocolate bar with a needle embedded in it was handed out in a neighbourhood south of Mississauga Rd., between Portway Ave. and Gatley Rd.
“It is unknown at this time if both incidents have any connection,” police said in a statement released Saturday.
“Police are reminding parents and children to check through all Halloween candy before eating and to report any instances where they suspect the candy has been tampered with,” police added.
