‘Food Terrorism’: Canadian Saboteur Puts Needles in Potatoes

$400,000 reward offered for info on serial saboteur pushing needles, nails into growing potatoes that end up on store shelves.


Potato farming is the main industry in Prince Edward Island (PEI) in Canada, but one treacherous individual has put that industry – and the safety of countless potato eaters – at risk by covertly pushing needles and nails into potatoes as they grow.

The PEI Potato Board has grown desperate and put out a 500,000 Canadian dollar ($400,000) reward for information about the saboteur, reports the BBC on Wednesday.

The sharp metallic objects first started appearing last October, and the reward being offered has risen steadily from 50,000 to 100,000 Canadian dollars and on to the current sum.

Nails have been found by customers in store-bought bags of potatoes, indicating the potential danger posed by the anonymous saboteur. Recalling tampered potatoes has cost farmers millions of dollars.
