Earlier this week news broke of the contamination, believed to have originated at a Queensland-based supplier, after a Brisbane man claimed he had found several small metal needles inside strawberries from a Woolworths store.
Woolworths has issued a recall of strawberries, asking customers to return strawberries purchased at stores across the country for a refund.
ACT chief health officer Dr Paul Kelly said no contaminated Berry Liscious or Berry Obsession strawberries had been reported in the territory, but encouraged caution.
Police believe the needles may have been deliberately planted with the perpetrator wanting to cause harm.
Acting Detective Chief Superintendent Terry Lawrence said this appeared to be a copycat incident, but police are keeping an open mind.
Police hunting for a culprit who put sewing needles in strawberries are investigating whether a disgruntled worker could be to blame.
She had already sent her nine-year-old to school with uncut strawberries, but when cutting more strawberries for her 12-month-old at home, she found a needle. "We'd be lucky at the moment to get between $3-4 a kilo", Mr Schultz said.
"At this time, have reason to suspect that a disgruntled ex-employee may have orchestrated the occurrence, wherein sewing needles were found in a number of strawberries, in Queensland and Victoria", the organization said in a statement.
It's feared six separate brands of brands of strawberries have been contaminated with needles.
