Child in the U.P. finds nail in Halloween candy bar

ISHPEMING — Authorities in the City of Ishpeming are urging parents to check their children’s Halloween candy after a nail was discovered in a local child’s candy bar.

Ishpeming City Police say the child found the small nail in a mini candy bar they had obtained while trick-or-treating within the city. The nail was noticed before the child attempted to eat it, so no injuries resulted. Police say the nail was pushed through the sealed wrapper, and the damage wasn’t very noticeable.

The candy was obtained somewhere on a route including all of Michigan Street and Maurice Street, Wabash to Second, Second to Empire, Empire to Battery, and part of Oak Street from Empire Street. Investigation into the incident is ongoing.
