It is still a good idea.
Before the kids are allowed to eat any candy- round them up and carpool with neighbors to the hospital to get the loot X-rayed.
The X-ray will reveal any needles, razor blades, or metal filings in the treats.
Is there a test for weed killer or rat poison? Ask about it.

“Ocean Beach Hospital is offering to x-ray Halloween candy on Nov. 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.”
No screening until Tuesday- so tell your kids to keep their hands off the candy until then.
