Local police have encouraged parents to throw away candy their children obtained during trick-or-treating as a precautionary measure. Officers say the powder tested positive for the drug methamphetamine.

At this time, detectives believe it is an isolated incident, according to Fox11. "We haven't received any other reports". Right now this is an isolated incident, but if there was more out there, if it does get through the Ziploc baggies and kids are touching this candy, that can be very risky to them.

The incident has also forced Keshena Primary School to bar students from bringing Halloween candy to the school's events celebrating the holiday.
