A six-year-old girl from North Lindenhurst bit into some candy from her Halloween stash, and felt something strange. Upon looking, a 2-inch sewing needle was found. Suffolk County Police said the the girl wasn't injured after biting into the Twix bar.
According to the New York Post, the girl trick-or-treated on Halloween and officials said the tainted candy bar was given to her somewhere on North Hamilton Avenue, Spiegelhagen Street, North Greene Avenue, North Erie Avenue or North Delaware Avenue in North Lindenhurst.
After a number of incidents across the country with children finding needles, pins, or razors in their Halloween candy, police are encouraging parents to take a close look at the sweet treats before their little ones eat them.
