Halloween Candy Injuries

halloween candy injuries

Negligent manufacturing has been known to cause children to be injured by Halloween candies. This can happen from contaminated candy or candy shapes that are choking hazards. Raleigh personal injury attorneys at Brent Adams & Associates help innocent victims who were injured due to no fault of their own. Two years ago a Halloween candy recall scared many families. It was 2010 when Raisinets and Mega Pops Lollipops were recalled due to possible traces of metal.

 

Manufacturers need to be held accountable for negligent production methods, however, manufacturers are sometimes completely innocent, and candy may be tampered with by someone as a joke or act of cruelty.

If you are concerned about candy your children have ingested and you think the manufacturer is at fault, contact our Raleigh injury lawyers for a free consultation.

3 Tips for a Safe Halloween

 

  1. Limit access to candy. According to TIME Magazine, the most common cause of discomfort on Halloween is eating too much candy. Experts recommend that parents provide a full dinner to children before they go trick-or-treating to prevent upset stomachs.
  2. Supervise children with food allergies. Parents of children with peanut allergies and other food allergies on Halloween are not worried about the quantity as much as what’s inside the candy itself.
  3. Educate children on Halloween hazards. Halloween comes with its own set of common injuries from non-edible festive tricks and treats: Halloween vandals who throw eggs have been known to cause eye injuries upon impact or stray shell pieces lodging in the eye.

Another tip would be to instruct children not to eat the candy until they get home. This allows parents to eliminate any candy that may pose choking dangers to younger children. JP
