Police continue to investigate alleged strawberry contamination

Bellerive CIB is continuing to investigate an alleged incident reported on social media regarding suspected contaminated strawberries.

 

Detective Acting Inspector David Richardson said that Tasmania Police contacted Woolworths supermarket at Rosny Park in relation to an alleged incident reported on social media.

 

“Yesterday afternoon, a customer returned strawberries to the supermarket which were purchased earlier in the day, alleging they had been contaminated by a needle,” Detective Acting Inspector Richardson said.

 

“Police attended Woolworths at Rosny Park and collected the strawberries believed to be contaminated and are conducting examinations on the products.

 

“As the products have yet to be forensically examined, it is unknown if the contamination is related to the ongoing incident in Queensland.

 

“All relevant information is being collated in each state and provided to Queensland authorities to assist with their ongoing investigation.”

 

Police wish to urge members of the public to be attentive when consuming food products, such as fresh strawberries, and to report the matter to police if they believe they have purchased products that have been potentially contaminated.

 

Information can be provided by calling Tasmania Police on 131 444 or anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at crimestopperstas.com.au
