Hand Grenade Found In French Potato Shipment
Hong Kong A hand grenade was found among a shipment of French potatoes when they were unloaded at a food processing factory. Workers called the police who responded to the Calbee snacks factory with a bomb disposal team to dispose of the UXO.
The UXO, identified in reports as a German WWI era hand grenade, is believed to have been left in a trench during the war and accidentally gathered up with potatoes planted a century later in the former battlefield. Covered in dirt and mud, it could have been easily been mistaken for a potato.
