Police in Toronto have received a single report of a thumbtack discovered in a Halloween collection acquired during trick-or-treating in the vicinity of Culford Road and Lawrence Avenue West. Thankfully, no injuries were reported in this incident.

Law enforcement authorities are urging residents and their children to exercise caution and refrain from consuming any items from their treat bags until each piece of candy has been meticulously examined.
