Donnybrook operates three farms on the Sunshine Coast but distributes strawberries throughout Australia, including to Coles.
Queensland chief health officer Dr Jeannette Young said that following today's potential "copycat" incident, people should be "ultra cautious" and cut up any strawberries before consuming them.
NSW Police are also urging anyone who has purchased contaminated product to take the punnet to their local police station immediately for triage and forensic examination.
She had already sent her nine-year-old to school with uncut strawberries, but when cutting more strawberries for her 12-month-old at home, she found a needle.
"He didn't get hurt or anything - didn't get pricked", she said.
In a statement released by Queensland Strawberry Growers Association on Wednesday, it was confirmed the company had suspicions a certain ex-employee had inserted the needles into the strawberries which were found over the last week.
"They are also contacting the supplier, the police and health and safety", Gane stated.
Strawberries from Berry Obsession and Berry Licious have been contaminated with sewing needles.
"We have withdrawn Berry Obsession and Berrylicious branded strawberries from sale while this incident is being investigated".
The Queensland Strawberry Growers Association said it appears the punnets of strawberries were interfered with between the time they were packed and the time they were purchased.
Police said a Coles employee had discovered the silver rod in a punnet of strawberries they had purchased at work.
Chief Superintendent Lawrence said those responsible for contaminating the fruit could be charged with maliciously causing grievous bodily harm, an offence which carries up to 10 years' imprisonment if convicted.
But the bottom line is: If in doubt, throw them out.
"As the products have yet to be forensically examined, it is unknown if the contamination is related to the original Queensland incident or a copycat", NSW Police said in a statement late Friday.
Health authorities are urging people to cut up strawberries to make sure they are safe to eat and police want anyone who finds a needle to contact them.
"But with Koby, sometimes I just pull the heads off and give her the whole strawberry".
'There is no reason to stop eating strawberries, we just need to be aware of this incident'.
Authorities said on September 13 that they believe that they had mitigated enough risk for customers to buy strawberries again, as all stock had been replaced.
