EAST WINDSOR, Conn. (WTHR) – A woman from Connecticut is warning people on social media about the possible dangers hidden inside shopping cart handles after she was injured while shopping at a Walmart.

The woman, Kelly Boulay, was cut on her finger by the blade that had been embedded in her shopping cart handle.

She posted photos of the discovery that left her with a bloody finger on Facebook.

An assistant manager at the Walmart told NBC Connecticut that it was clear that someone put the razor blade there purposely.

The store contacted police after Boulay made them aware of the incident and helped her bandage her finger.

Store employees immediately checked every cart, and did not find anything else, the assistant manager said.

Walmart released the following statement on the situation:

“It’s disturbing that someone would purposely try to injure a customer or associate. We take this matter seriously and have since checked all shopping carts and are currently conducting regular checks.”

East Windsor police are investigating the incident.
