Halifax Regional Police is investigating an incident of potential food tampering.
On May 28, a woman called police to report that she had found a nail inside a potato she had cooked. She bought the bag of River Valley potatoes, package in a brown bag, at Giant Tiger on Dutch Village Road three to four weeks ago. No injuries were reported as a result of this incident.
There have been several incidents of potential food tampering reported across the Maritimes. We ask that anyone who finds any foreign metal objects in a potato refrain from throwing out the potato, metal object or the bag it was located in when purchased. Please contact police so the potatoes and related items can be passed along to investigators.
