FBI: Trace amounts of ricin found in baby food

Now why would Muslim extremists try and kill/injure innocent babies?  Well, maybe because they aren’t Muslim.  We don’t have American terrorists.  Right USA government?  They all come from somewhere else.

IRVINE, California (AP)—Two jars of baby food purchased at the same store were contaminated with ground-up castor beans containing tiny amounts of the poison ricin.

Police said Wednesday they were looking for a man who may have witnessed the contamination of the jars, which also included notes that referred to an Irvine police officer.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials who tested the baby food said the ricin was not in the purified form that can be deadly. Rather, it was a less toxic, natural component of the castor beans, which can be obtained from ornamental plants.

“It’s unlikely there would be serious injury with the level of castor bean found in those two jars we tested,” said Dr. David Acheson, chief medical officer with the FDA’s Center for Food, Safety and Applied Nutrition.

Small amounts of the food were eaten, but the babies had no symptoms, he said. No arrests have been made.

Authorities called it an isolated case and said no more contamination was found at the store where the two jars were bought. “There’s no reason to believe there is any more out there,” said Dan Henson, a special agent with the FDA.

More food for though.
