X Raying Halloween Candy?

Okay i live in a small town in Ohio and my husband decides to tell me that when he was younger that his grandma took him to the local hospital where they x rayed his halloween candy for free. Has any one else even heard of this? I swear he full of well you know but are there really hospitals that do that?

  • I had that done at our local hospital growing up and so did my son. LOL They x-ray it for razors and what-not.

  • I have never heard of that, but it sounds like a great idea. My mom and dad used to go through that candy with a fine tooth comb. They got rid of at least half my, they used to tell me they where going to give it to church for the needy.
