After a man poked them with a syringe yesterday, a Woolworths store was forced to pull all the bread from its shelves.
A man behaving erratically reportedly tainted the products at around 4.35pm at the Roxburgh Park supermarket on Somerton Road in the outer-north of Melbourne.
For the five minutes he was in the shop, staff were alerted to the incident by a customer and did not engage with the man.
The police are looking for the suspect, who has yet to be found.
A Victoria Police spokesperson said, “On arrival police were told that a man had entered the store and contaminated a number of products by poking them with a syringe.”
“He then left the store. The products were removed from the shelves and police searched for the man.”
A spokesperson for Woolworths said the bread was either thrown away or offered as proof to the police.
