FALLBROOK, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are investigating a woman's report that she found needles in two apples purchased at a Southern California grocery store.
The San Diego County Sheriff's Department says the customer discovered a needle after slicing into a Honeycrisp apple she purchased at the Albertsons store in Fallbrook on March 15. She says she sliced into a second apple the next day and found another needle.
The customer took the second apple to the store and reported her find.
The grocery store removed all Honeycrisp apples from its shelves and reviewed surveillance video. Officials did not find any suspicious activity.
In a statement, a spokesman for Albertsons says the company has notified the vendor and is cooperating with the investigation.
