Needles in Snickers
Needles in candy
In 2000 James Joseph Smith of Minneapolis allegedly put needles in Snickers bars and gave them out to kids on Halloween. A 14-year-old boy was pricked when he bit into the candy, but no one needed medical care.
Smith was charged with one count of adulterating a substance with intent to cause death, harm or illness.
