After a single piece of pie went missing from a communal employee fridge at an Edmonton Sobeys' warehouse, an order selector was dismissed for the theft.

It was discovered a worker identified as “A.B.” appeared to have removed the pie slice from the fridge on Dec. 14, 2015. He was terminated Dec. 21 under the company’s zero-tolerance policy.

Delaina Macneill worked as a cashier in the cafeteria when she bought a single piece of pie and placed it in the fridge to be eaten at her next break. Later, when she attempted to retrieve it, the slice was gone.
