'If in doubt, throw them out': Needles in strawberries prompt warning

Contaminated strawberries, Queensland – update 1 - Queensland Police News

"These strawberries are distributed in South Australia by Coles, Woolworths, IGA and Aldi".

The farms are not related to the farm packaging strawberries under the Berry Licious and Berry Obsession brands which was hit with a needle crisis earlier in the week.

A 21-year-old Burpengary man who bit into a strawberry with a needle inside it on Monday told The Courier Mail he ended up in hospital after swallowing part of it.

Her nine-year-old son had also taken strawberries to school, but by the time she contacted the school to raise the alarm, he'd already bitten into the strawberry and discovered the needle.

Last night two further incidents emerged in Victoria, prompting an urgent investigation.

Acting Chief Detective Superintendent Terry Lawrence said anyone who finds anything in their fruit should contact police, who will come and collect them as potential evidence.

"We want everybody to check their strawberries before consuming them ... just cut them up, have a look", Supt Lawrence said.

"We are now working with retailers nationwide to ensure that all Donnybrook stock is removed from sale", Dr Young said. If you are in doubt, just throw them out.

Dr Young said she was particularly anxious about those who may have frozen the strawberries for use later and may not still have the packaging.

"We have withdrawn Berry Obsession and Berry Licious branded strawberries from sale while this incident is being investigated with our suppliers".

"At this time, have reason to suspect that a disgruntled ex-employee may have orchestrated the occurrence, wherein sewing needles were found in a number of strawberries, in Queensland and Victoria", the statement read.

She said that people can "chop them in half" if they remained concerned about the presence of needles.

Three more cases of needles and pins found in strawberries have been confirmed, with six brands now believed to be affected.

There are fresh warnings that more brands of strawberries could be contaminated with sewing needles.

"A lot of people won't know the brand of strawberries they've bought ... if they do have any strawberries it would be safest to dispose of them".
