Huntley police are warning the public after a child reportedly bit into a Kit Kat bar they received from trick-or-treating that contained a large needle in it.

The Huntley Police Department said they received a report of a piece of tampered candy Wednesday evening that was possibly handed out in the Talamore subdivision.

The resident told police that they had discovered a large sewing needle in a small Kit Kat bar after their child bit into the piece candy, according to Huntley Deputy Police Chief Mike Klunk.

“At this point, it is unknown where or when the object was inserted into the candy. The entry point of the needle was visible on the exterior of the candy wrapper. No one was injured in the incident,” Klunk said.

“As we investigate, we would like to remind all parents and caregivers to carefully inspect any candy before children
consume it. Any food with wrappers that appear ripped, punctured or tampered with in any way should be discarded,” Klunk said.

Anyone with information on this incident or who has experienced similar circumstances is asked to either email Detective Kallantzes at tkallantzes@huntley.il.us or call Huntley police at 847-515-5333.
