Needle found in Halloween candy in Colwood

West Shore RCMP are warning public to inspect candy

With plenty of Halloween candy still left to be consumed, West Shore RCMP are warning parents to carefully check candy after a needle was found in candy collected from a Colwood residence.

RCMP received a report Monday (Nov. 2) that a sewing needle about three inches in length was found inside the wrapping paper of a bite-sized Wonderbar chocolate candy.

No one was injured and it is believed the contaminated candy was collected in the area of Woodpark Drive in Colwood.

Detachment spokesperson Const. Alex Berube warns that although tampering is rare, all candy should be carefully inspected before being consumed. He recommends discarding any items that look suspicious.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact the West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
