It’s always a good idea to be cautious on Halloween when it comes to the candy your child eats. This year, be on the lookout for domino-shaped candy in their bags — they are not candy and could be dangerous to your children.
Police in Mississippi have warned that these are actually drugs. They may come in other shapes, too. According to IJ Review, the drugs can look like Superman logos, Facebook “likes”, and dominoes.
The Jacksonville, Mississippi Police Department wrote on Facebook, “If your kids get these for Halloween candy, they ARE NOT CANDY!!! They are the new shapes of ‘Ecstasy’ and can kill kids through overdoses!!! So, check your kid’s candy and ‘When in doubt, Throw it out!!!'”
The problem is apparently not just limited to Mississippi. Reports state that this problem is widespread, so parents around the nation should be checking their children’s candy.
On a comforting note, however, cases of poisonous Halloween candy is very rare. Still, it’s better safe than sorry when it comes to the safety of our kids.
