HR Strange But True!
February 18, 2003
We all know that HR is never boring. But sometimes, it can get downright strange...

Taking it out on the customers

A disgruntled employee of a Michigan food store has been arrested after dumping a nicotine-based insecticide into 200 of pounds of ground beef, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office, which added that more than 40 people ate the adulterated meat and suffered ill effects. At least one person required hospitalization.

The employee, Randy Bertram, is charged with two counts of poisoning meat with insecticide, and faces twenty years in prison and more than $250,000 in fines.

"He was an employee who was distressed with his employer and took advantage of his access to several hundred pounds of ground beef and poisoned it, and put it into the hands of innocent shoppers," says U.S Attorney for the Western Michigan District Margaret Chiara.
