Calgary Food Tampering Problem Continues


CALGARY — A recent rash of dangerous food tampering cases has Calgary consumers spooked, as metal shards and push-pins have been turning up in everything from baked goods to ground beef.

According to the CBC, no one has been hurt in some 11 reported cases at city grocery stores since January. The police speculate that the tampering is the work of “idiots” and are taking the matter very seriously, cautioning the public to be vigilant and check their groceries.

The Canadian Council of Grocery Distributors is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest or conviction.
