Police in Shizuoka City said Wednesday that sewing needles nearly five centimeters in length were found inserted in bread rolls at a supermarket.
The needles were found in five bread rolls delivered from a major distributor on Tuesday at around 6:30 a.m., TV Asahi reported. A 56-year-old woman who had bought the bread noticed the needle in a roll before eating it and notified the store.
Police said they are examining store surveillance camera footage to see if someone inserted the needles into the bread while it was on the shelf. They are also investigating the bakery and distributor.© Japan Today
