East Windsor police are investigating after a woman was injured by a razor blade in her shopping cart at Walmart on Sunday night.
Kelly Boulay was cut on her finger by the blade that was embedded in the handle of the shopping cart.
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.

On July 5 the Bentonville, Arkansas-headquartered big-box retailer was awarded a patent detailing an invention focusing on the delivery of packages as well as scheduling the delivery of these packages. Titled ‘Delivery Reservation Apparatus and Method” the patent which was filed early last year talks of delivery hubs (locker docking station) which use a public ledger to determine available capacity and make reservations. Reserving Capacity at the Delivery Hub Information regarding which locker is available or reserved is recorded on a public ledger. Once requests for reservations are made, the public ledger is analyzed with a view of determining whether there is sufficient capacity available. If there is, a contract is executed seeking to reserve capacity. The public ledger is then updated to indicate this development. In order to utilize a blockchain reservation system, each docking station or delivery hub is essentially a node within a blockchain network. “Updates to the blockchain may comprise transfer of capacity units into and out of the public ledger and one or more nodes on the system may be configured to incorporate one or more updates into blocks to add to the distributed database,” reads patent application number 62441705 and which lists Bruce Wilkinson and Todd Mattingly as the inventors. Package Delivery Pain Points In filing the patent Walmart acknowledges that while online retail offers customers convenience since purchases are delivered to them rather than the customers having to travel to a store, it presents challenges for the retailer or the courier. This is especially in the case of deliveries where a signature is required as scheduling a time that is convenient for both the courier and the recipient might be difficult. #bitcoinnews #bitcoininfo
