Sharp objects found in strawberries
TWO incidents of strawberry contamination have been reported to police, renewing fears of a fresh fruit crisis.
South Australian police are investigating the separate incidents in Salisbury and Clare after sharp objects were found embedded in strawberries yesterday. It’s unclear whether the strawberries were the same brand.
The incident comes more than a month since the last fruit contamination in South Australia. Police are recom- mending all strawberries be cut up before consumption and any contamination should be reported to police
In September, strawberry producers were forced to dump hundreds of thousands of dollars of stock over contamination fears.
