[[AC:{{Film}}]]
* The original ''Film/NightOfTheDemons1988'' featured a frame story of this. A cranky old man is angered by children, and comes home on Halloween with a bag full of apples and razor blades. The final scene involved the old man sitting down for a breakfast of apple pie made by his wife. He only asks her after taking a few bites where she got the apples...
** Of course, FridgeLogic says that to make apple pie, you have to slice the apples.
*** Of course, there's also FridgeBrilliance in that's how the wife found out and ''deliberately'' left the razors in there.
* In ''Film/TrickRTreat'', the SerialKiller principle puts poison in some of his candy. There's also CreepyChild Sam, who uses a razor-chocolate bar as a weapon in one scene.
** Also, as a nod to this trope, [[spoiler: when Mr Kreeg falls down the stairs, they're littered with hypodermic needles, straight pins, shards of glass, razor blades and candy]].

[[AC:{{Live-Action TV}}]]
* In the beginning of the ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' episode "War Stories," the crew is indulging in a box of fresh apples Jayne bought for them, when Kaylee asks Zoe why she always cuts them with a knife instead of biting in. She relates a story from the war, where the Alliance and Independent armies had a standoff, got to talking, and the Independents mentioned they had no food. The Alliance soldiers tossed over apples--which had "Griswold" grenades in them and before anyone realized it, "[[YourHeadAsplode there's three guys just kind of end at the ribcage]]."

Added DiffLines:

* In Ireland, the Hallowe'en Barm Brack (similar to fruit cake) generally has an (easily swallowed) ring in it as a fortune-teller, with the idea being that whoever found the ring would be married within the year. Traditionally, it may have included a dried pea, a stick, a coin and a piece of cloth: all small, hard objects.

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).

* Ground glass is placed in the food at a diner in the horror novel ''Literature/WhatAboutTheBaby?'' by Clare McNally. The result is quite bloody.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
