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

Contaminated strawberries, Queensland – update 1 - Queensland Police News

The health concerns over needles and pins found inside Australian strawberries are continuing to escalate with NSW police now warning up to six brands may have been affected.

Queensland chief health officer Dr Jeannette Young said the contaminated brands came from a farm in south-east Queensland, and were sold to Woolworths, but could also have been distributed to other stores.

Consumers in Queensland have been told to return or discard fruit due to the harmful contamination after a customer was rushed to a hospital after swallowing part of a needle in a strawberry.

A couple in Gladstone found a needle inserted into a strawberry on Tuesday, after their nine-year-old son bit into the booby-trapped fruit.

A New South Wales mother has also come forward, after finding needles hidden in a punnet of strawberries bought from a Coles supermarket.

The Warmuran farm which supplied the berries under the brand names Berry Obsession and Berry Licious, was inspected by Queensland police and Australian Border Force officers yesterday.

"Please be careful and crush them up before eating or just chuck them out", she said in the Facebook post.

Authorities in Australia on Thursday said they had four confirmed incidents of "contaminated strawberries" after an individual reportedly discovered a needle inside a berry after taking a bite.

According to the Herald Sun, health officials and police said on September 12 that three punnets of strawberries from Queensland and Victoria had been found to have needles in them-one from Queensland and two from Victoria.

"We are working closely with our local and interstate counterparts as the investigation continues and are committed to keeping the public informed as this progresses".

"So some of those reports coming in are not something that we would pursue. because we are so early in the stage of each of these reports coming through and how large it is for us to follow each one of them down".

Police said a Coles employee had discovered the silver rod in a punnet of strawberries they had purchased at work.

The Queensland Strawberry Growers Association suspects a former staff member is behind the contamination.

"Our investigation is still open, we're not going to get into speculation".

On Wednesday, a Queensland woman narrowly avoided feeding contaminated strawberries to her son, posting photos of the fruit online.
