The incident comes after a supermarket in Pennsylvania was forced to throw away $35,000 worth of food because a woman deliberately coughed over it in a twisted coronavirus prank.
Gerrity’s Supermarket in Luzerne County said the woman coughed over the store’s fresh produce, as well as a section of their bakery, meat case and other groceries, meaning employees had no choice but to throw everything out and clean the shelves.
The prank comes at a time where shoppers are concerned about dwindling store supplies as people stock up on groceries amid the COVID-19 health crisis.
