Needles found in spuds

Sewing needles have been found in potatoes in Prince Edward Island, prompting an investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and a recall notice from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

Two previous reports mentioned only “metal objects” found in potatoes from Linkletter Farms on Prince Edward Island.

Now comes news that the RCMP has been involved since Oct. 2 when needles were found in potatoes to be processed into french fries at the Cavendish Farms plant at Annan.

The investigation continues and the recall remains in process.
