CARTERSVILLE, Ga. - Authorities say another syringe has been found in clothing from a Walmart store in Georgia, bringing the number of cases to 15 at the same store since late November.

Sheriff's officials in Bartow County. North of Atlanta, say they're investigating what appeared to be a broken piece of a syringe with the needle intact. The Daily Tribune News reports that it was found in a pair of brown slippers purchased from the store in December.

A woman reported the case to the sheriff's office Friday, saying her daughter had bought the slippers and later discovered the needle. No injuries were reported.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. spokeswoman Dianna Gee has said company officials believe the syringe scare is isolated to its Cartersville store.
