First case of strawberry contamination confirmed in Australia's Northern Territory

The first case of a contaminated strawberry has been found in the Northern Territory.

Police and health officials are yet to say if the strawberry contained a needle in it, as has been occurring across the country.

Police are holding a media conference in Darwin this afternoon.

The original contamination was reported in Queensland, prompting dozens of suspected copycat incidents involving strawberries and other fruits.

NSW authorities are investigating more than 20 incidents of needles found in strawberries. Source: Breakfast
