For parents of trick-or-treaters in northwest Houston, one area health center will provide peace of mind to parents concerned about contaminated candy.
The Emergency Health Centre at Willowbrook will provide free X-ray screening of candy on Halloween night.
The Centre is located on the 22,000 block of Tomball Parkway between Louetta and Spring Cypress roads.
While the Centre will provide this complimentary service Wednesday, Centre administrators wish to remind parents to “always inspect all candy before it is consumed and immediately dispose suspicious-looking or unwrapped items.”
Young trick-or-treaters will also be rewarded with bags containing glow sticks, face paint, a miniature pumpkin, flashlight batteries, neighborhood maps and safety tips for trick-or-treating.
