Good Morning Yogurt Lovers,
Sadly the following article is posted as a PSA and intended to remind you of the inherent dangers of accepting ‘samples’ at your local grocery store. In fact one our missing ‘Rules Committee’ members suffered a similar experience when sampling Dog Food for his beloved vicious pet. The ensuing legal action resulted in a settlement that unfortunately won’t allow the substance in question to be disclosed. Please be careful.
Anthony Garcia pleaded guilty in the case in October, admitting he contaminated a sample of the yogurt he was handing out at an Albuquerque Sunflower Market in January 2011. He was sentenced Thursday.
Garcia also admitted putting some of his semen on a plastic spoon that he placed with the yogurt. The 32-year-old then approached a female customer and offered her a sample.
The woman told police that after tasting the sample, she spit on the floor several times and wiped her mouth on the garment she was wearing to get the taste out of her mouth.
Federal prosecutors called the allegations “sickening and appalling.”
Garcia had faced up to three years in prison. –Associated Press Feb 14, 2012-03-07
