Earlier this month in the German Kornwestheim (Baden-Württemberg) a supermarket was evacuated by the police due to an employee (19) being bitten by a spider when unpacking bananas, the German newspaper Bild reports on its website. It was initially unclear which creature it was. There were fears it could be the poisonous banana spider, but the employee could also have been stung by a scorpion.
