Nanaimo RCMP investigating possible food tampering

Nanaimo RCMP says the public needs to be especially vigilant and inspect meat products before eatign them.

They say they're investigating after pins were found in Grimm's meat products sold throughout Nanaimo.

RCMP say they've had three reports about food tampering at separate stores in the Vancouver Island city since December 2017, but no injuries have been reported. In each case, a pin _ similar to one used for sewing _ was found in a pepperoni stick or Ukrainian sausage made by Grimm's Fine Foods.

Police say they haven't received any other report so far involving other meatr products in Nanaimo or elsewhere.

Investigators believe the products were tampered while on display.
