Earlier last week, Australians were shocked when news of tiny needles being found inside fresh strawberries from local supermarkets began to surface.

A warning was even issued for everyone to cut up their strawberries before consuming them to check for needles after several people reported finding sewing needles inside their strawberries. This has even caused a number of Australian strawberry brands to remove their products from local supermarkets, according to BBC News.
