Toronto Police have issued a public safety alert this morning following a dangerous discovery in a packaged chocolate bar purchased from Dollarama in the city's west end. Police allege that a 41-year-old man notified them of the incident this past Saturday, October 20th.
The man reportedly purchased a Twix bar from the Dollarama location at 30 Weston Road, at the corner of Weston Road and St. Clair Avenue West. Police claim that a razor blade was discovered inside the packaging of the chocolate bar.
The following photos of the chocolate bar in question were provided by Toronto Police in their statement:
The Twix bar was part of a package which contained other mini chocolate bars - which sounds like it could've been an assorted bag of Halloween candy. No injuries were reported, but police are treating it as a "suspicious incident."
As Halloween approaches, this warning from Toronto Police should serve as a reminder to always inspect your candy before eating it.
