A man was arrested for allegedly putting razor blades into fresh pizza dough sold at a Maine supermarket.
A customer at the Hannafords grocery story in Saco, Maine found razor blades in a Portland Pie brand pizza dough purchased on October 5, authorities said.
Portland Pie-branded products are supplied by Itll Be Pizza. The man arrested in Dover, New Hampshire, is a former employee of the company, police said.
The police investigation widened in subsequent days to include other tampering cases in Sanford, Maine, and in Dover, New Hampshire.
Hannaford issued a recall for all Portland Pie dough and cheese products sold between Aug. 1 and Oct. 11 at its 184 stores in New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.
“Out of an abundance of caution, Hannaford has expanded its recall for Portland Pie pizza dough to include all Portland Pie branded products at all Hannaford stores,” said spokesperson Ericka Dodge.
