Man arrested in baby-food hoax

August 01, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A New York city man was arrested after he allegedly claimed in hoax Internet videos that he had poisoned millions of bottles of baby food because he wanted to kill black and Latino children.

Gerber Products Co. and the Food and Drug Administration found no evidence of tampering with Gerber products. The company was flooded with complaints after people saw the videos, the FDA said.

Anton Dunn, 42, was charged with sending threats in interstate commerce and falsely claiming to have tampered with a consumer product, crimes that carry a maximum of 10 years in prison.
