First on The Rumour File

Another fruit needle scare has emerged in a grape purchased from a supermarket in Melbourne’s north-west.

A Melbourne mother, Chloe Shaw, warned others following the incident.

“Please check all your grapes before eating especially if your giving them to your kids!,” she said in a Facebook post.

Police confirm they are investigating a report of a sewing needle found in a grape bought at Aldi in Caroline Springs on Sunday.

It comes just a fortnight after two reports of needles found in strawberries sold at Melbourne supermarkets.

A spate of needles in strawberries across the country last year brought the industry to its knees.

Police have issued a reminder that contaminating food is a serious indictable offence, and those caught can be jailed for up to 10 years.
