Added DiffLines:
** There are also a few cases of children dying after eating Halloween candy, and the media goes into a frenzy due to this trope and initially attributes it to poisoning, only for it to later be discovered that the child died of unrelated natural causes (the fact that it occurred after consuming Halloween candy being purely coincidental).

** It's also possible for purely accidental cases to happen if a screw, nut or other piece of metal becomes detached from the machinery in the factory; foodstuffs are supposed to pass through a metal detector after being packaged to prevent this sort of thing, but they're not perfectly reliable and corners sometimes get cut.

* In the first arc of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'', [[CuteAndPsycho Rena]] gives Keiichi a box of rice balls. The first one he bites into contains a sewing needle. [[spoiler:[[UnreliableNarrator But not really.]] It's actually Tabasco sauce, but Keiichi's escalating paranoia has started screwing with his ([[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness and the viewer's]]) perceptions.]]

* In one ''Literature/PaddingtonBear'' story, Paddington [[spoiler: almost]] swallows the coin in the Browns' Christmas pudding, as he's not aware of the tradition (see the real life section).

Added DiffLines:
* Likewise, in England, it's traditional for a coin to be put in the Christmas pudding, to be kept by whoever's slice it turns up in. Because of the size of the coin and the consistency of the pudding, the recipient will usually notice it in the bowl and avoid biting it, though.

* There are only two instances of children actually dying from eating candy that was tampered with; in both cases, [[OffingTheOffspring the victims died at the hands of their own families]]. An eight year old boy died after eating Pixy Stix that had been laced with cyanide; however, it turned out that the poisoned candy had been planted in his trick-or-treat bag by his own father, who also gave a few pieces of tampered candy to his daughter as well as three other children in order to [[InvokedTrope cover his tracks]] so that he could collect on the life insurance (thankfully, neither the daughter, nor any of the other kids ate the candy). ** In another case, a five year old child lapsed into a coma and died after getting into his uncle's stash of illegal drugs and consuming a lethal dose of heroin. The child's family sprinkled some of his Halloween candy with heroin in an attempt to invoke this trope as a cover-up; it didn't work. Both cases are [[http://www.snopes.com/horrors/poison/halloween.asp discussed]] on ''[[{{WebSite/Snopes}} Snopes.com]]'' as well as other cases which were initially thought to involve Halloween poisonings. The presence of foreign objects in candy, including needles, has occasionally been shown as true, but only in isolated cases.
