Don't cut them out, cut them up!
If you told us that right now, you were avoiding buying or eating Aussie strawberries at all costs, we wouldn't be surprised.
Since the story broke last Wednesday when a needle was discovered in a strawberry in Queensland, there have been reports of copycat crimes, the contamination has seemingly spread to other states, other fruits and, Aussie growers have been forced to dump huge amounts of their produce because supermarkets won't accept it.

Remember to please cut up or smash your strawberries before you eat them to make sure they're not affected.
