We in Australia are in the grip of a scare with some deranged bastards putting sewing needles in strawberries. Needles have been found in the fruit in most states. Nobody knows where it's occurring or who is doing it.
What a disgusting thing to do especially considering how many small children love to hoe into a punnet of the delicious, red berries.
Therefore, on our way home yesterday, we called into a strawberry farm in Wanneroo and bought a huge box of the fruit. These poor farmers are now tipping tonnes into pits as the big 2 (Coles and Woolies) have taken them off the shelves. Farms are looking at their whole crop being trashed! Poor sods.
I hope they get to the bottom of this quickly!!
