Australia's strawberry needle sabotage explainedby Guardian News 8 months ago
Australian authorities have launched a nationwide investigation looking for those responsible for sabotaging strawberries with metal implements. Sewing needles and pins have been found hidden inside strawberries across the country by customers who bought punnets from various supermarkets.
The crisis is having a devastating impact on strawberry growers. In response, prime minister Scott Morrison has announced tough new laws for those found guilty of deliberating contaminating food. 'If you are scaring children... you are a coward and a grub,' he said.
