World News – UA – Thousands of new devices sold cheaply due to beetle infestation


Millions of dollars in new devices and electronics are on sale at extremely discounted prices – and there’s a creepy, frightening reason why

Over 2,000 items ranging from televisions to refrigerators, washers, dryers and iPads are up for grabs, some expected to cost as little as $ 10

Goods cannot be sold in stores as beetles were found in containers that shipped them to Australia from Thailand earlier this year

The shocking discovery was made when a woman from Canberra bought a refrigerator and found it full of bugs when she opened it at home

As a result, retailers had to remove from shelves not only the affected stock, but also all other merchandise that had been stored with the infested items

All products have since been inspected, fumigated and cleaned by the Ministry of Environment and Agriculture

Michael Hayes of Hilco Global, the company that sells the items at auction, said the items up for grabs are in perfect working order and many are still in their original boxes

However, they are no longer covered by their warranty, which is why they are offered at a low price and cannot be sold through retailers

« We have everything from refrigerators to Apple iPads, headphones, 82 inch TVs, freezers and dishwashers, » he told Sunrise
