HANOVER, Penn. (WPMT) -- A Pennsylvania grocery store said it had to throw out $35,000 worth of food after a woman "purposely" coughed on it in what the co-owner called a "twisted prank" amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"We had no choice but to throw out all product she came in contact with. Working closely with the Hanover Township health inspector, we identified every area that she was in, we disposed of the product and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected everything," Fasula said, estimating the loss at more than $35,000.
Fasula never mentioned coronavirus, but said the incident was disturbing "in these times when so many people are worried about the security of our food supply."
