HUNTINGTON, TX (KTRE) -

A warning for parents out on this Halloween night check your kids candy after they come home from trick-o-treating.

According to Sabrina Maxie, of Huntington, she found a long needle in her 11-year-old's Halloween candy.

She says her family went trick-o-treating around the Wilson and Huntington area Monday night.

Maxie writes on Facebook that all East Texas parents need to check their kids candy before they eat it.

The FDA advises parents to inspect commercially wrapped treats for signs of tampering, such as an unusual appearance or discoloration, tiny pinholes, or tears in wrappers.

FDA officials add parents to throw away anything that looks suspicious.
