AJAX, Ont. — Durham regional police say they’re investigating after a woman found a fumigation product in a package of dried soup.

Police say she told officers that when she attempted to cut the foil packet, the package emitted a powdery substance.

They say the woman was not injured.

Investigators says the powder has been identified as a fumigation product normally used to protect food from insects, but it’s not known how it got into one of the soup pouches.
