Two women were arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in Central Visayas after their efforts to extort money from a food manufacturing company was discovered.

A video posted by Aldara and Sistine Piñero went viral as it showed worms in Sunpride Foods Inc.'s corned beef. They posted it on Facebook last November 16 and reached the attention of the company.

The two demanded Sunpride Foods Inc. to pay them P735,000, which was the number of times the video was viewed.

Doubting their credibility, the manufacturing company asked help from NBI-7 to investigate if it was just a modus operandi.

It turned out that it was. Henry Dy, Sunpride Foods Inc. general operations manager, said that it was really impossible as the video showed the can was already opened and served on a plate.

He also stated the fact that their products go through a sterilization process wherein they heat them up to 270 degrees Fahrenheit to destroy bacteria.

“That’s about 121 degrees centigrade for 70 minutes, ensuring that nothing, no microorganisms can survive, certainly no worms can survive in the can when you open it,” Dy said.

He also added that if worms were mixed in the corned beef, there should have been a foul odor; but the Piñeros said there was none.

NBI-7 Director Patrocinio Bernales said that they will file charges of violation of the Anti-Cybercrime Act and Robbery by means of Intimidation against the Piñeros.
