How to find a needle in a strawberry

Needles were first reported in strawberries in Queensland in the second week of September, but they’ve since been found in all Australian states, New Zealand and Singapore, in a variety of different brands. There are also isolated cases of needles found in bananas and apples.

This crisis is resulting in Eriez experiencing a rise in demand for its metal detection product line. The Xtreme MD is capable of detecting a sewing needle inserted into a strawberry and alerts users when a metal contaminant is found.

In its base package, the metal detector offers a 175 mm, easy-to-use touchscreen interface, multiple pre-programmed languages, easy set-up and reporting, multiple USB and interface ports, remote access and the standard high-pressure washdown design.

The company has units of various heights and widths available for shipment and even offers ‘try and buys’ on existing stock or quick shipments of detectors from its global headquarters.
