Needle found in Australian strawberries sold in New Zealand

WELLINGTON (AFP) – The Australian strawberry scare has spread to New Zealand with a supermarket chain announcing yesterday that needles were found in a box of the fruit sourced from the neighbouring country. The Countdown supermarket chain said it had taken a brand of Australian strawberries off the shelves after a sabotaged punnet – a plastic box – was sold in an Auckland store.
