The FBI is issuing warning to anyone who is a frequent shopper. Its quite sad that this is even a message that needs to be given. However, we live in a world where people do not care about anyone but themselves.
This is why it is so imperative that you wash all your fruits and vegetables before consuming them.
Reports have now confirmed our worst fears, as cameras captured one young man visiting several grocery stores with the sole intent of spraying a poisonous mixture on open food throughout their produce sections.
The young man was apprehended, and later confessed to authorities that the horrifying mixture consisted of mouse poison, hand sanitizer and water. The unnamed man now faces four felony counts of poisoning food and drink.
About 15 stores — including a Whole Foods Market and a Kroger — in Ann Arbor, Flint, Midland, Birch Run and Saline, Michigan, may have been targeted, according to the Washtenaw County Public Health Department. Targeted stores promptly disposed their produce and all fresh food bars were shut down immediately.
“While the risk for adverse health effects appears to be low, more investigation is being done to determine what level of exposure may have occurred,” said Dr. Eden Wells, chief medical executive for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
The process of safely sanitizing your food to remove chemicals or pesticides is simple. Just place your fruits and veggies in a sink of cold water, squeeze half a lemon into the sink with a tablespoon of salt and a splash of apple cider vinegar. Then let it soak for fifteen minutes.
