WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. (CBS/AP) — Police are searching a woman they say urinated on potatoes at a Walmart in western Pennsylvania. Police released surveillance images of the woman on their website.
It is not known when the incident took place.
In a statement, given to CBS3 sister station KDKA, Walmart said they “immediately disposed of the affected products and sanitized the area.”
“The safety of our customers is a top priority for us. This type of obscene conduct is outrageous and we immediately disposed of the affected products and sanitized the area to ensure its cleanliness and safety for our customers. We’re working with the West Mifflin Police Department to find the responsible party and have them prosecuted.”
Walmart says it is working with police to find the person and have her prosecuted.
The incident comes weeks after video posted on social media showed people licking ice cream from freezers at Walmarts in Texas and Louisiana.
