Virginia -

The Better Business Bureau offers some tips to ensure you and your family have a fun, but safe Halloween.

• Don't eat candy until it has been inspected at home.

• Trick-or-treaters should eat a snack before heading out, so they won't be tempted to nibble on treats that haven't been inspected.

• Tell children not to accept—or eat—anything that isn't commercially wrapped.

• Parents of very young children should remove any choking hazards such as gum, peanuts, hard candies, or small toys.

• Inspect commercially wrapped treats for signs of tampering, such as an unusual appearance or discoloration, tiny pinholes, or tears in wrappers. Throw away anything that looks suspicious.
