WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — New York State Police are investigating a possible consumer product tampering involving packaged candy from a Walmart.

New York State Police were made aware of the complaint on Thursday, Oct. 29.

After investigating, they found that two small needle-sized nails were reportedly found inside of two individually wrapped Almond Joy bite-size candy bars.

The candy bars were purchased from the Watertown Walmart approximately two weeks ago, according to police.
