Dirty Halloween

Health officials are warning people to be careful when wearing rubber Halloween masks. Accelerated Analytical Labs recently swabbed and tested 16 different Halloween masks from several Halloween stores. They found that all, but one of the masks contained traces of bacteria, feces and mold.

Researcher Thomas Hirsch says “There’s a lot of different growth. We saw pretty high levels of bacteria and mold. That could definitely be a vector for spreading cold and flu in this season, for sure,” he added.

Parents are being urged to wipe down the inside of masks before their children wear them.

So…that’s how Michael Myers died….
