‘Twisted’ woman went to supermarket just to cough on $35,000 of food that had to be dumped
A supermarket was forced to throw out $35,000 worth of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and bakery products after a ‘twisted’ customer walked around coughing on it.
The unidentified woman, who is said to regularly act like a nuisance at Gerrity’s Supermarket in Hanover Township, Pennsylvania, reportedly came in on Tuesday especially to cough on food during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Shop worker Joe Fasula wrote on the store’s Facebook page: ‘Today was a very challenging day.
‘At 2:20 p.m. today, I got a call from our Hanover Township store.
‘The manager informed that a woman, who the police know to be a chronic problem in the community, came in to the store and proceeded to purposely cough on our fresh produce, and a small section of our bakery, meat case and grocery.
‘Im also absolutely sick to my stomach about the loss of food.
‘While it is always a shame when food is wasted, in these times when so many people are worried about the security of our food supply, it is even more disturbing.’
Fasula said staff dumped every piece of food coughed on by the woman, before disinfecting shelves. They worked to shepherd her out of the store as quickly as possible, with the woman not believed to be suffering from any Covid-19 symptoms.
She was subsequently arrested, with prosecutors now planning criminal charges against her.
Fasula said that the incident gave his staff the chance to practice emergency coronavirus procedures – and has assured customers that the supermarket is now even cleaner as a result.
The woman’s cough attack came as 26 year-old Cody Pfister, from St Louis, Missouri, was charged with licking a deodorant at a Walmart store.
So far, almost 70,000 Americans have been infected with coronavirus, with close to 1,000 dead as a result. Officials have warned the entire nation to observe social distancing procedures in a bid to avoid the virus, which can easily be spread through coughs or sneezes.
