A Metal Pin Discovered in Candy Bar

A message from Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard:

The ECSD office is investigating a complaint from a concerned parent Wednesday night about a piece of metal found lodged in a Nestle Crunch mini candy bar. Detectives were dispatched to a Clarence home and observed a pin embedded in the candy with evidence the wrapper was compromised.

Sheriff Howard is warning parents and anyone who went trick-or-treating in the Clarence neighborhood with the following streets: Chelsey Court and Westminster Drive, as well as an Amherst neighborhood with the following streets: Forestview Drive, Crestwood Lane, Oakview Drive, Timberlane Drive, and Timberlane Court, to collect all candy and thoroughly check the packaging for defects and foreign objects.

Parents and guardians should examine all candy and the wrapper for any defects, tears, holes, or any abnormality before it’s given to children or other individuals.

The Sheriff’s Office is working Kaleida Health to offer free x-rays of candy collected in the aforementioned neighborhoods. Individuals can take the candy to Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital and Great Lakes Medical Imagining on Park Club Lane in Amherst for imaging during normal business hours.

Anyone who went trick-or-treating in those neighborhoods and discovers a foreign object in a piece of candy is asked to preserve the candy and contact the Erie County Sheriff’s Office at 716.858.2903.

Detectives are continuing to investigate the incident.
