SYDNEY – Police have made their first grip in the case of strawberry abattoirs in Australia, where sewing needles were found in fruit sold in six states.
Police in the Queensland state say they have arrested 50-year-old My Ut Trinh and charged her with seven bills of contamination of goods.
Detective John Walker from the State Crime Command said she worked in the strawberry industry near the town of Caboolture, north of Brisbane.
She would appear in court on Monday. Every bill against her imposes a maximum of 1
0 years imprisonment.
Australia’s strawberry industry was destroyed after the reminder of the fruit was ordered after the first scoop in September and several others believed to be copycat traditions.
No damage was reported.
