Got this urgent media advisory in my email just a few minutes ago:
A concerned father filed a report at the LaVergne Police
Department on Monday evening that his 12-year old child discovered a sewing needle in a
tootsie roll. The child was not injured.
The father said the child went trick-or-treating on the following streets in Lake Forest
Subdivision: Randall Lane, Little John Cove, Jack Patton Cove, and Davidâ€™s Way (from Randall
Lane to Forest Ridge).
The police advise parents to dispose of any remaining
candy if their children were in this area.
â€œThis is a major concern,â€ said Chief of Police Mike Walker. â€œThe safety of our children is of the
utmost importance. Sometimes making sure kids are safe may require a drastic measure such
as throwing away Halloween candy. We strongly recommend that parents take this action if
they cannot ensure that the candy is safe for consumption.â€
