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.
A disgruntled former worker in Australia has been accused of purposely putting sewing needles in strawberries, according to police.

It's not known if all the finds are from the original Queensland incident, because not all of them have been forensically examined.

"Definitely those two are the only brands of concern but if people don't know, and they want to be ultra cautious, then it would be best if they just throw out any strawberries", Dr Young said.
"We could be finished by the weekend", he said.
They are sold at Woolworths and possibly other outlets.
"Police are urging the community to check their strawberries after what appears to be sewing needles were located in two punnets in Yarram and Sebastopol", says a statement released by Queensland Police yesterday.
