A sick woman from Tucson, Arizona, was recently arrested after it was revealed that she was buying baby formula, contaminating it, and returning it.
The actions of Jennifer LaPlante, 30, forced Tucson official to issue a public health concern.
According to the Tucson Police Department, LaPlante tampered with the ingredients and resealed the packages before returning them.
“The suspect removed the contents of the formula from the containers, refilled the containers with other substances — to include flour and other various contents — resealed the containers, and then returned said containers to various businesses for a refund,” police revealed.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The affected products include Gerber “Good Start” Soy infant and baby formula.
Tucson.com reported that the contaminated formula was dispersed to many stores in the city.
Those stores include, but are not limited to:
• Fry’s, 7050 E. 22nd St.
• Fry’s, 9401 E. 22nd St.
• Walmart, 8640 E. Broadway Blvd.
• Walmart, 7150 E. Speedway Blvd.
Tucson Police Chief Chris Magnus warned parents in the area to double check any formula they recently purchased.
“We can’t rule out that there could be other versions of this particular product or other brands in fact involved,” he said. “So I would say any purchase of a similar product should be scrutinized carefully.”
