Toronto police issued a warning.

Police are warning Toronto-area residents to proceed with caution if they receive a free bag of chocolates in the mail.

The alert comes after a rusty razor blade was found in one package.

The suspicious parcel was delivered to a Scarborough, Ont. home sometime between September and Nov. 16, Toronto police said in a news release Tuesday.

The chocolates “appeared to be a promotional delivery,” but police didn't offer details about who sent them.
