Piece of metal blade found in Halloween candy given out in Hamilton County
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– The Hamilton County Sheriff’s office says a 13-year-old girl found a piece of metal inside a candy bar that turned out to be a piece of a blade.
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s office says the blade was found inside a 3 Musketeers mini candy bar that the girl received while trick-or-treating on Halloween. She bit into it and is being treated for any possible injuries she might have sustained.
The girl’s parents contacted the sheriff’s office about it, who investigated and found that the piece of metal was in fact part of a small blade.

The sheriff’s office said the incident appears to be isolated and they have had no other similar reports.
Parents are encouraged to check any extra candy before allowing children to eat them.
