Prince Edward Island’s Potatoes
It’s a sad day when you can’t trust a potato, and in 2014, there were many sad days. It started in October, a series of cases arose pertaining to needles and nails having been found in a supply of potatoes imported from Prince Edward Island. The first discovery stemmed from Atlantic Canada, leading eyes to focus on a French fry production facility. Despite the efforts from law enforcement and the Prince Edward Island Potato Board, the culprits responsible for over 7 counts of tampering remained at large. To tighten the noose, the potato board offered a $500,000 reward to anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perps. As of a year later, there were still no arrests made.
