Halloween Candy (Press Release)

by Public Information Officer, Monday, October 31, 2011, 02:00 (2732 days ago)

There have been several requests from the media about Halloween candy. Neither the Abilene Police Department nor the Health Department has ever had a case where injury has been inflicted due to tainted Halloween candy. This has been a topic of discussion at Halloween time going back earlier than the 1970’s. We advise all Trick or Treaters to only visit homes of people they know. We advise people to only accept pre-packaged commercial items. This will greatly limit the chance of a contaminated item. Unpackaged items like fruit should not be accepted. If a packaged item has a torn wrapper it is best to throw it away. Have a safe and happy Halloween.
