VTV.vn - Two needles were found in a bag of grapes bought from an Australian supermarket on Monday, resurrecting the national crisis which saw 186 people find needles in strawberries and other fruit.

The needles were reported to be hidden in two separate grapes from a batch sold at a Woolworths supermarket and were found by a couple in the city of Melbourne. Australia's government amended a law to more harshly punish those responsible for hiding the needles, increasing the maximum sentence from 10 years in prison to 15.

Previously, a strawberry needle crisis started on September 9 when one victim ended up in hospital after eating a strawberry with a needle inside.
