Authorities say syringes have been found in clothing sold at the Walmart in Cartersville four times in recent days. Bartow County sheriff's Sgt. Jonathan Rogers says that in two of the cases, hypodermic needles have pierced the skin of customers, who required emergency medical care to prevent the spread of disease.
Patricia Headrick told the newspaper she fears contracting a disease such as hepatitis after being stuck by a needle while shopping for women's clothing.
