SACO (WGME) — The Hannaford in Saco is recalling some fresh pizza dough after police say someone put razor blades inside the dough.
Saco police say they are watching security footage and looking at a possible person of interest spotted in a vehicle driving away from the Hannaford in Saco.
Hannaford Supermarkets in Saco has a single store recall out for customers who purchased fresh pizza dough from the deli between Monday, October 5 at 2 p.m. and Tuesday, October 6 at 10 a.m. after what is believed to be a “malicious tampering incident.”
The recall is for all fresh pizza dough found in the case by their deli. This includes both Hannaford brands and Portland Pie.
Hannaford says the incident was brought to light after another customer returned their pizza dough.
“It appears the tampering took place in the store and not from where the dough was originally made,” said Deputy Chief Corey Huntress with the Saco Police Department.
Saco police say several of the Hannaford’s different style pizza doughs had puncture wounds in the material and they’ve never seen anything like this before.
“Why someone would go in and put razor blades in pizza dough, that’s going to be the question that when we do locate the person, we’ll want to know. We don’t have an answer for why someone would do that,” Huntress said.
One shopper CBS 13 spoke with says he’s worried and hopes nothing else is found in other food.
“I mean this seems pretty scary to me. I don’t want it to be me. I want to know. It makes me scared to go shopping,” shopper Steven Clemins said.
At this time, Saco police and the Saco Hannaford both say no one has reported any injury or illness in connection or as a result of the recall.
Hannaford is stressing that customers should not eat the pizza and can return it to the store for a full refund.
