Three more needles found in spuds

Police say they have found three more sewing needles imbedded in potatoes recalled by Linkletter Farms of Prince Edward Ialand.

They were found as returned potatoes were screened through a metal detector.

That brings the total to 10 needles and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have another three pallets of recalled potatoes to screen.

Earlier this week, farmers and others in the P.E.I potato industry put up a reward of up to $50,000 for information that would lead to convictions for tampering.
