The days of finding sharp objects in supermarket produce don’t quite seem to be over with yet another scare occurring this week.

A Coles shopper claimed on Tuesday she found a safety pin inside a frozen pack of the supermarket’s brand of raspberries.

“Not ideal when you find an open safety pin in the frozen raspberries you are using to make healthy snacks,” she wrote to Twitter.

The customer shared images of the packet she claimed the pin was fished from, as well as an image of the pin in question.

In reference to the bag’s packaging stating the product had been “packed in Serbia from local and imported ingredients”, the shopper posed a question to the supermarket.

“Is this a packed in Serbia thing?” she wrote.

They requested the shopper send a private message with which store the berries were purchased from.
