Three nabbed for adding maggots to supermarket meat
AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Three young men in the northern Dutch town of Damwoude were charged with damaging property after adding maggots to supermarket meat that was later sold to a customer, police said Thursday.
The shopkeeper found 40 maggots after the customer complained, and identified the men, aged between 18 and 21, on a surveillance tape as they put the insect larvae into packaged meat.
Only one package of the maggot-infested meat was sold, a police spokeswoman said.
The suspects told the police that they had played a prank with bait left over from fishing. The rest of the meat in the store was destroyed.
