Needles found in sausages from No Frills

Needles found in sausages from No Frills

Jokes about making sausages are as old as sausage itself. It is rare that people actually want to know what’s in their links, delicious or not. But Toronto police warn that this wilful ignorance has the potential to cause serious injury. From the Star:

Police are urging the public to check packaging of all food products after needles were found embedded in sausages. All three cases, which occurred in May, involved Piller’s polish sausage.

Police say the packages were purchased from No Frills stores, two from the 372 Pacific Ave. location in the Junction, and the third package from 2187 Bloor Street W. in Bloor West Village.

That’s right: needles—in more than one package. Apparently the Piller’s quality control guy is either non-existent or sewing carelessly on the job.
