If you haven’t already, it’s always advised parents go through their children’s Halloween candy.

Codiac RCMP received reports of a suspicious candy found in a bag after a child came home from trick or treating.

Two small misshapen candies wrapped in wax paper were found, that were received in the Evergreen area in Moncton.

None of the suspicious “candies” were ingested, no one was injured, and the items were subsequently seized by police.

Police are now sharing photos of the candies in an effort to educate the public.

“We understand that this can be alarming for parents, and we are investigating the matter,” said Staff Sergeant Jonathan White with the Codiac Regional RCMP. “We are encouraging parents to call us if they also saw this in their child’s Halloween treats, however, at this point, it remains an isolated event.”

As a general rule, candy should not be consumed if it has:

  • An unusual appearance or discoloration
  • Tiny pinholes or tears in wrappers
  • Spoiled or unwrapped items
  • Wrapping that is not commercially produced
  • Homemade items or baked goods should be discarded unless you personally know who gave them.
  • And “when in doubt, throw it out”
