Strawberry recall: Disgruntled ex-employee believed to be behind sewing needles in strawberries

What The !!!! As serious as this Social Media has begun the jokes.

The Queensland Strawberry Growers Association suspects a disgruntled ex-employee was behind the sewing needles found in a number of strawberries sold by Woolworths.

In a statement, the association said it had "reason to suspect" it was a former employee and was waiting on more information from Queensland police.

Police and Queensland Health have warned consumers to dispose or return punnets of two brands of strawberries — Berry Licious and Berry Obsession — which were sold in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
