A Yellowknife mother is warning parents to check their children’s Halloween candy after claiming to have found Tylenol in her daughter’s box of Smarties Tuesday.

The woman, who would prefer to remain unnamed, says she discovered the Tylenol after opening several boxes of her daughter’s Halloween candy while looking for a snack.

She claims she noticed one Smartie looked slightly different than the others, and when she turned it over she discovered it was Tylenol.

She says her daughter was trick-or-treating in the Bigelow and Williams Avenue area with friends. Now she’s warning parents to be on the lookout for candy that’s been tampered with.

Yellowknife RCMP have responded to the complaint and are investigating the allegation. They’re reminding the public to ensure any candy in their possession is thoroughly examined.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Yellowknife RCMP at (867)-669-1111 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
