REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio — Police in central Ohio are urging parents to check their children’s candy after trick-or-treating this weekend.

The warning comes after a razor blade was found in a candy bar.

WSYX in Columbus reported that a group of pre-teenage kids were trading Halloween candy when one bit into a “fun size” Snickers bar and found a small razor blade wedged inside the middle. Police told WSYX the package had been tampered with and that other pieces of candy had tears in the packaging. That candy was taken to the Franklin County morgue to be examined.

Police are investigating the circumstances and inspecting other candy items that were handed out in the area.
