Sharp blade found in Halloween candy shocks father
Matt Evans's daughter discovered blade inside piece of Starburst candy
A parent in Selkirk, Man., has filed a police report after his daughter found a sharp blade in one of her Halloween candies.
Matt Evans says his 14-year-old daughter, Morgan, was going through her treats over the weekend when she discovered something sticking out of a piece of Starburst candy.
"When she opened it up, she can see the edges of a razor sticking out."
The blade is similar to one found in a pencil sharpener, Evans said, adding that he's thankful his daughter did not bite into the candy.
"When I actually saw the candy, I was, [for a] lack of better term, pissed off that somebody would actually do that," he said.
Evans said his daughter went trick-or-treating at more than 100 homes on Halloween night.
RCMP confirmed to CBC News that it received a report on Sunday.
It's not the only such incident reported in Manitoba.
RCMP confirm they are investigating a report that a nail was found in a piece of candy in Swan River.
