FBI: Man Sprayed Poison On Produce At WHOLE FOODS…

This is scary! Have you ever thought about what someone could put on your produce before you buy it? Now it’s not just pesticides that you have to worry about…it’s mouse poison! The Washington health department’s phone has been ringing off the hook with calls from concerned shoppers. They say a man has admitted to the crime, but what was his motive?

From CBS:

The department’s Kristen Schweighoefer said there’s no evidence so far that anyone has gotten sick, but there is a lot of concern in the community.

“Given the popularity of these grocery stores, it’s not surprising that a number of people have eaten foods, especially produce, from those grocery stores,” she told WWJ’s Sandra McNeill. “What we’re doing is trying to determine if their symptoms are consistent with the mouse poison and hand sanitizer, things like that.”

The FBI says a man, now in custody, sprayed a mixture of an alcohol-based hand-sanitizer, water and Tomcat mouse poison — contaminating produce and other food items at three Ann Arbor grocery stores in the last two weeks.

The FBI’s Jill Washburn said, while they’re still deciding whether he should face federal or local charges, there has been no time yet set for a hearing in the case.

“At this point we’re examining what our options are,” Washburn said. “…And part of that hinges on the fact that we’re still collecting evidence and doing our investigation, so depending on what turns up there.”

Confirmed stores are Whole Foods Market, 990 W. Eisenhower Parkway; Meijer, 3145 Ann Arbor-Saline Road; and Plum Market; 375 North Maple Road.

Washburn said they’re looking into additional locations that may have been involved.

How bizarre! Is he just a mean-hearted human being who has fun hurting others? This makes me nervous to eat produce where literally ANYONE can touch it.
