Photo from a Facebook Post by Joshua Gane showing the needle he found in a punnet of Woolworths strawberries bought from Strathpine, Queensland on September 9, 2018.
At the time, Gane said his friend was experiencing abdominal pain and explained he wanted to share the post so children didn't have to endure similar pain.
He also explained that since the ordeal, the Woolworths store manager advised him all Berry Liscious and Berry Obsession punnets have been recalled from the supermarket's shelves. "They suspect it is foul play, but unsure whether it was via the supplier, Woolworths, or a customer".
Contaminated strawberries were also found in Yarram and Ballarat, in Victoria, prompting urgent recalls of the two brands in Queensland, NSW and Victoria.
"If someone were to swallow a sewing needle, it could get caught up in their gut", Young told the newspaper.
The Queensland Strawberry Growers Association said it appears the punnets of strawberries were interfered with between the time they were packed and the time they were purchased. The two brands can be found in Woolworths and potentially other stores.
Acting Detective Chief Superintendent Terry Lawrence said there was no evidence of extortion but police inquiries were continuing.
"[It's been done] obviously to injure somebody", he said.
