Fruit had to be recalled from supermarket shelves

A woman's appeared in court in Australia charged with putting pins in strawberries.

The scare earlier this year meant fruit had to be recalled from supermarket shelves and destroyed.

230 incidents were reported across Australia, impacting 68 strawberry brands.

The 50-year-old woman is accused of seven counts of contamination of goods.

She could face 10 years in jail if found guilty.

The prosecution says she was "motivated by spite or revenge" after a row with her employer.

Police say their investigation into what happened is continuing - after copycats and hoaxes.

She was remanded in custody until later this month.
