CALGARY — The Canadian Council of Grocery Distributors is offering a $10,000 reward to help catch whoever is tampering with food at Calgary grocery stores.

Spokesman Allen Langdon says the association thought it was important to come forward and offer its assistance.

Police were called to a Safeway outlet on Monday afternoon for reports of a metal item being found in a loaf of bread.

Earlier this month a Calgary Co-op customer was charged with mischief after pins and sewing needles were found in bread and other products.

Last week, three new cases of tampering were discovered at different Sobeys outlets in south Calgary.

So far no one has been injured, though in one instance, a customer found a metal item inside an avocado and two other customers found pieces of metal inside kaiser buns.
