MELBOURNE, March 28 (UPI) -- An Australian Easter reveler posted photos online showing a used syringe he purports to have found inside a Cadbury white chocolate egg.

Peter Oakley said in a Facebook post he found the syringe in a white chocolate Cadbury Dream Easter egg his mother purchased from the Canterbury Garden Woolworths in Kilsyth, a suburb of Melbourne.

"Keep your eyes out before giving choc rabbits to friends or kids. Hopefully the [expletive] that did this did it only once as a joke," Oakley wrote. "Will be reporting this tomorrow."

He said in a comment that he believes the syringe to be the work of a prankster who targeted the candy long after it left the factory.

"Looks like someone peeled back the foil and jammed it inside and then put the foil back in place. The loose bit of chocolate was still inside," he wrote in a comment.

Some Facebook users on Woolworth's official page accused Oakley of perpetrating a hoax, while friends took to the page to support his account of events.

How's this for an Easter surprise. My mum bought this at Canterbury Garden Woolworths in Kilsyth. Keep your eyes out...
