Trick or Treat, it's safe to eat!
Rachel Callahan eagerly waits for Mike Zerbe PA-C of New England Urgent Care to x-ray her Halloween candy during the clinic's Candy X-Ray Day on November 1st . The free screening was available at all three of their locations in West Hartford, Simsbury and Enfield to ensure the safety of area trick-or-treaters. Fortunately, candy tampering is not a common problem but caution is always advised, especially when it looks as though packaging of treats may have been compromised.
