A Pennsylvania supermarket was forced to toss out more than $35,000 in groceries after a woman intentionally coughed on fresh produce, baked good and the meat counter.
Joe Fasula, the co-owner of Gerrity’s Market in Hanover Township, said the woman was committing “a very twisted prank.”
Police and the district attorney’s office are investigating and they said they plan to pursue numerous charges against the woman. They do not believe she was infected with the virus.
“We had no choice but to throw out all produce she came in contact with,” Fasula wrote on Facebook. “While there is little doubt this woman was doing it as a very twisted prank, we will not take any chances with the health and well-being of our customers.”
Fasula said the incident is even more disturbing because so many people are worried about the security of the food supply.
“I am absolutely sick to my stomach about the loss of food,” he said. “The only silver lining to this travesty is that it gave us the unfortunate opportunity to test our protocols and demonstrate how seriously we take your safety.”
The police and district attorney need to make a very public example out of this thugette.
