Meridian family finds tainted candy in child’s Halloween bag, police say

A Meridian family said they found a tainted piece of candy in their child’s Halloween bag, according to Meridian Police.

MPD said they received a report from a family who found a candy bar that appeared to be tampered with.

The child’s family went trick or treating in the White Stone Subdivision. The dad opened one of the snack size Butterfinger’s Wednesday, began to eat it and immediately spit it out.

He said it had a disgusting taste like cough syrup medication and looked red inside instead of the normal yellow/tan color, according to MPD.

Police say the candy was somewhat liquid inside.

“Upon inspecting the wrapper of the candy dad said he could see the top corner was sliced open,” MPD said.

CBS2 reports that Police have sent the wrapper and the candy to a lab to process.

MPD also said they haven’t received any other reports.
