Family finds razor blade in Halloween candy
Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies are warning parents to keep a close eye on Halloween candy after a razor blade was found inside a Twix package on Oct. 31.
Sheriff's spokesperson Jeff Talbot said it appears the blade was taken from a pencil sharpener. The candy was found in the area of Northwest Quatama Road and Northwest Cornelius Pass Road, Talbot said.
The candy was reported by Tiffany Beehler, of Beaverton, who found the blade late on Oct. 31. She had taken her three children trick-or-treating and her 13-year-old daughter, Brookelynn, came to her and said she had found the blade inside the candy bar.
"She was panicked," Beehler said.
The family has gone trick-or-treating in the neighborhood before without any problems, Beehler said.
"Never in a million years would I have thought it would happen," Beehler said. "You hear about it all the time on TV, but I've never seen anything until last night."
Beehler said parents should always check candy, either from the store or from Halloween outings, before giving sweets to kids.
