CINCINNATI (AP) – Authorities say two Ohio families who went trick-or-treating together have reported finding sharp metal objects in Halloween candy.

Police in Colerain Township outside Cincinnati say a father from one family found an object Thursday night in a peanut butter cup. A mother from the other family needed several stitches when she cut her finger while spreading out candy.
