Police have charged a woman in a food-tampering case at a Calgary Co-op grocery store.

CALGARY — Police have charged a woman in a food-tampering case at a Calgary Co-op grocery store.

A member of the public last week reported finding metal objects in food items at the Oakridge store in the city’s southwest.

The store said the metal had been pushed into packages of deli cheese and flatbread.

Tatyana Granada, who is 43, has been charged with mischief over $5,000.

Police say they continue to investigate two other instances of food-tampering at the Co-op, although no one has been injured.

In one case, breads and cheeses were found to contain pins, sewing needles and buttons, and in the other case pins had been placed in some produce.
