This piece of candy allegedly had a needle hidden in it, according to the family of the girl who bit into it.

Muskogee police took a report early this morning of a child who found a needle inside a piece of chocolate candy received while trick-or-treating yesterday.

The report was taken on Cincinnati Street between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m.

The candy was obtained while trick-or-treating in the Meadows addition.

The specific chocolate was a Reece’s peanut butter cup.

Parents should check all of their children’s candy before allowing them to eat it.

Police are now working to determine what house the candy may have come from.

Fewer than a dozen reports of harmful objects hidden in candy have borne out to be true and not hoaxes in the history of the nation, according to

UPDATE 11 a.m.: The family says the girl who bit into the candy was a 14-year-old, but the candy was actually obtained by a 12-year-old trick-or-treating. According to the family, the girl who bit the candy was not injured; the needle allegedly hit her tooth.
