    Police in Connecticut are investigating after a 1-year-old child suffered a minor injury from a piece of metal hidden inside the wrapper of a candy bar gathered while trick-or-treating.

    Groton police say they received a call from the child's mother at about 10 p.m. Tuesday.

    The "small, thin piece of metal" was found inside the wrapper of a Snickers Fun Size candy bar.

    Police are trying to figure out the source of the candy.

    Police have received only one complaint but urged all parents to check their children's Halloween candy carefully and call police if they find anything suspicious, or discard candy from unknown and untrusted sources.
