Sicko Poisoned Groceries at Stores We Shop At!

4 replies • Last post

Check out this story.

This makes me absolutely sick to hear. Some psycho was caught spraying produce at grocery stores with mouse poison, hand sanitizer, and water. The guy is obviously nuts, but this one strikes really close to home for me, literally. It's actually gone out as being a national news story, and if his activities were successful they could have seriously harmed or killed a lot of people.

It looks like the guy lived in my city of Midland, Michigan, and he is thought to have possibly sprayed the produce at Meijer, Wal-Mart, and Family Fare, all of which are stores we shop at. We generally get our produce from a farm through a harvest share, but because the growing season hasn't kicked in yet, we get our produce primarily from Meijer (with occasional stops at Family Fare or Wal-Mart if we are already there). While they say it's unlikely that it will harm people, my wife and I had to toss some of our produce.

Sometimes I swear I hate people...

That is really scary, 'Slim, and I agree it is too close to your home. At least you heard about it soon enough to take action.

After the tylenol poisonings in the '80s (and I hate to say this, but....) I said I am honestly surprised things like this don't happen more often with the way our world is today.

Let's all STAY SAFE out there!

You know they say don't be afraid of the monsters hiding in the dark, be afraid of humans. Sometimes I get quite scared when I think how many sickos like this are just walking around us. Hope no one gets hurt.

Sheesh what a scumbag. The sad thing is that they have to publicise it to warn people but it has probably given some other nutcase a few ideas now.
