URGENT RECALL OF STRAWBERRIES SABOTAGED WITH SEWING NEEDLES

There’s an urgent, nationwide recall of Woolworths strawberries.

This is a picture of a berry that’s been sabotaged with a sewing needle.

Police believe needles have been deliberately planted in some punnets, to cause serious harm, and they have.

On Sunday night, a 21- year-old Queensland man was hospitalised after swallowing a strawberry, containing part of a needle.

Last night two further victims have come forward.

Anyone who has bought strawberries with that branding, anytime since early last week, is urged to dispose of them immediately.
