Church Asks For Eggs To Be Returned

Church Asks For Eggs To Be Returned

Posted: Updated:
Daphne -

Did you take your kids to the Easter Family Fun Day at Christ The King Catholic Church in Daphne over the weekend? If you did, the church wants you to bring back any Easter Eggs you got there. They'll exchange them for new candy.

A spokesperson for the church says a volunteer had prescription medicine in an egg and it was accidentally mixed in with the 1,500 eggs used for the hunt on Sunday.

Part of a statement from the Church, released Monday, says:

It is possible, but unlikely, that another separate egg belonging to a volunteer was inadvertently and accidentally mixed in with the volume of 1500 eggs that were prepared by the Youth Ministry for the hunt.  The egg may contain a volunteer's medicine that is unlikely to, but could potentially, be harmful if ingested.  We believe that a sole egg which has been recovered was involved, but out of an abundance of caution are conducting a candy exchange to ensure safety.
