Has Anyone Ever Actually Poisoned or Put Razors in Halloween Candy?

My mother never checked my Halloween candy when I was a kid, but that was years before the Halloween candy tampering panic. We picked up homemade treats at quite a few homes. I always checked my kids' trick-or-treat bounty -and confiscate all the Almond Joys. They handed over any dark chocolate automatically.

Daven Hiskey of Today I Found Out explains why parents are so worried about candy tampering. Reports of poisoned Halloween candy turn out to be hoaxes, accidents, or in one horrific case, a parent murdering his own children. Just as in murder, rape, and theft, you're in more danger from family and friends than from strangers. -Thanks, Daven!
