Needles reportedly been found in Australian Strawberries has spread to New Zealand

There are now over 100 reports of needles being found in Australian strawberries with the scare spreading to New Zealand where the supermarket chain Countdown has taken Australian strawberries off their shelves.


There have not been any reports of any illness or injury in New Zealand however, and customers are being advised not to purchase any Australian strawberries.


Last week the Australian government last week raised the maximum prison sentence for fruit tampering from 10-15 years, and in an attempt to catch the perpetrators has offered a reward of A$100,000 ($72,000) for information leading to arrests.
