Walmart Needles – Walmart shoppers in Atlanta were pricked by hypodermic needles stashed in clothes on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and all this week.

An unidentified mom called police after her daughter was stuck in the finger and the foot while she was pulling on a brand-new pair of footie pajamas from the store, the Daily Tribune News reported.

Five days later, a 47-year-old woman was pricked in the hand while handling some bras at the store, according to reports.

Those two were checked out by doctors for hepatitis and other diseases, but the results were not made public.

On Tuesday, a third shopper found a broken syringe in the pocket of a pair of pans in the women’s department, but luckily was not hurt.

Bartow County police said they were looking at surveillance footage from the store for any sign of possible suspects.

“Anytime you buy clothing it’s always best to check it and make sure there’s nothing in there to hurt you,” Bartow County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Jonathan Rogers told the Tribune.

Walmart tipsers are encouraged to call Barstow County Sheriff’s department.
