It appears the contaminated fruit scare is not over after a Sydney family found a needle in an orange purchased from Woolworths on Monday.
Four-year-old Maddie Sheridan found the needle after asking her mum for a piece of fruit.
They took the contaminated fruit back to the purchase point at Woolworths in Casula, in Sydney’s south west.
The supermarket confirmed the disturbing find and police have been notified.
“We’re shocked. We feel violated,” Maddie’s mum said.
Investigators will now question when the orange was compromised as it may have been in storage for several weeks.
It’s been six weeks since the first contamination came to light in Queensland sparking a nationwide recall of strawberries.
While the latest find was labelled “disgusting” by little Maddie she said it didn’t affect her appetite when asked if she still wanted to eat it.
“Yeah, because I like oranges,” Maddie said.
