A furious mother claims that her 12-year-old daughter found an inch long nail in a strawberry that was purchased from Woolworths.
Suzy claims that her daughter made the shocking discovery after she cut into the fruit she bought at the Parra Hills store in the northern suburbs of Adelaide.
She said 7News she and her daughter, Sylvia, had taken extra precautions since 2018 when hundreds of strawberries were found with needles in them.

“I took the knife and started cutting, then I actually saw (it) there … I chose it to see what it was and it was a nail,” Sylvia said.
Her mother said she was shocked.
“It could have pierced something in her.”
Suzy returned to the store where she discovered that the strawberry screen seemed unchanged.
She has expressed her concern that the fruits have not been pulled off the shelf.
“I would have assumed that they had only taken a precautionary measure to get the strawberries off the shelf until they could tell what actually happened,” she said.
“I picked up the knife and started cutting, then I actually saw (it) there … I unpacked it to see what it was and it was a nail,” Sylvia said
A Woolworth spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia that food safety is taken seriously and an investigation has started.
“We have seen the client’s report and we are investigating the issue in accordance with established procedures,” the spokesperson said.
“Although this appears to be an isolated case, we have carried out preventive checks of our store inventory and found no problems.”
