Inspecting Commercially Wrapped Candies for Signs of Tampering

-- Torn, loose, or punctured wrapping may be a sign of tampering. If you suspect tampering, this should be reported to local police.

-- Commercially produced candy may sometimes have color variation, lumps, or powdered sugar residue -- all normal effects of the manufacturing and shipping process. To see photos of candy with these normal effects, go to http://www.candyusa.org/Media/General/Security/candyguide.asp. This candy is generally safe to eat as long as the packaging does not show signs of tampering.

The California Poison Control System is a statewide network of trained experts providing immediate free treatment advice and assistance over the telephone in case of exposure to poisonous or hazardous substances.

The CPCS website is http://www.calpoison.org

The CPCS has four divisions located at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, San Francisco General Hospital in San Francisco, Children's Hospital Central California in Fresno/Madera and the UC San Diego Medical Center in San Diego. The CPCS is part of the University of California San Francisco School of Pharmacy and responsible to the California Emergency Medical Services Authority.
