Another syringe discovered in Walmart clothing

CARTERSVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say another syringe has been found in clothing purchased from a north Georgia Walmart store, bringing the total number of cases to 15.

Sheriff's officials in Bartow County say they're investigating the discovery of what appeared to be a broken piece of a syringe with the needle intact. The Daily Tribune News reports that it was found in a pair of brown bedroom slippers which had been purchased from the store in December.

A woman reported the case to the sheriff's office Friday, saying her daughter had purchased the slippers and later discovered the needle. No injuries were reported in the most recent case.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. spokeswoman Dianna Gee has said company officials believe the syringe scare is isolated to its Cartersville store.
