BURNS LAKE, B.C. - The RCMP in Burns Lake, B.C., say they have received a report of a needle found in a piece of Halloween candy.

The Mounties say in a news release the needle was discovered after a child asked a parent to check the candy.

Police say the young trick-or-treater had been to several neighbourhoods so police have not been able to isolate where the candy might have come from.

This is the only report of potentially harmful candy that the Burns Lake RCMP have received this Halloween.

The Mounties are reminding parents to inspect all candy before children eat it and ensure they're not eating treats in unopened wrappers.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the RCMP.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Nov. 5, 2019.
