Strawberries Have Now Been Recalled In South Australia

"To our current knowledge, two labels, Berry Licious and Berry Obsession, are the only affected lines".

The contaminated strawberries come from one farm and police suspect the ground-down needles were deliberately planted, with the culprit intending to cause "grievous bodily harm or other objectives".

Three punnets of Donnybrook strawberries containing sewing needles were found at Redbank Plains, Tweed Heads and Everton Park. "We are now at the ER because he subsequently started experiencing severe abdominal pain", Gane wrote.

His friend, Joshua Gane posted the incident to Facebook. A product recall was under way. The supplier, police and health and safety officials have also been contacted.

"Farmers are really nervous about it, obviously, and devastated something as bad as this would happen to the industry", Ms Rowling said.

The farms are not related to the farm packaging strawberries under the Berry Licious and Berry Obsession brands which was hit with a needle crisis earlier in the week.

Police investigations are ongoing.

"At this time, (we) have reason to suspect that a disgruntled ex-employee may have orchestrated the occurrence, wherein sewing needles were found in a number of strawberries, in Queensland and Victoria", a statement from the association said.

ACT chief health officer Dr Paul Kelly said no contaminated Berry Liscious or Berry Obsession strawberries had been reported in the territory, but encouraged caution.

Acting Detective Chief Superintendent Terry Lawrence said there was no evidence of extortion but police inquiries were continuing.

She said the punnets were both Delightful Strawberries branded product.

While the needles found in the initial attack had been inserted inside the fruit, the latest punnet had a metal rod placed inside the punnet, which had been purchased by a staff member on Thursday morning. "I pulled it out and there was a needle right there embedded in the strawberry", she said. "It's going to be a tough time for him financially with his business, but what effect that is long-term. hopefully that won't be too bad".

"People can go back and buy the strawberries they normally buy, from anywhere", she said.

"People are contacting us out of concern and saying: 'This is what I've got, what do you think?'", he said.

"For other brands, our advice is all strawberries should be cut up before they are eaten", Dr Young said.

"He's going through hell, it's an terrible situation to be in", Rowling said.
