A Peterborough mother is speaking out, after discovering a blade in her child’s Halloween candy.

Amanda Crowley says the blade appears to have come from a pencil sharpener.

“This is real I did not inspect the wrapper or the candy I really didn’t think about it as you don’t expect this, I unwrapped it and popped it into my mouth I didn’t notice anything. The blade had to have been in there lengthwise,” Amanda Crowley said on her Facebook page.
