Authorities are now asking parents to inspect all Halloween candy their children brought home, and if they find anything suspicious, to contact police immediately.

This isn’t the first time a child discovered a sharp object embedded in their Halloween candy this year.

On Monday afternoon, police in Barrie, Ontario were contacted by a concerned homeowner after her child allegedly bit into a chocolate bar that contained a two-inch needle.
