Accidental contamination as well as intentional adulterations:


  1. ^ "Food firm recalls lead-contaminated lollipops". MSNBC. May 2, 2009. Retrieved 2009-07-19. "King Midas Inc. said Friday it is warning stores to stop selling Hola Pop, a caramel lollipop with a salted apricot in the center. The candy also comes in other fruit flavors."

  3. ^ "Into the Mouths of Babes". New York Times. July 24, 1988. Retrieved 2008-10-28. "It is well within the reach of most white-collar criminals to assume an air of irreproachable virtue, especially when they're about to be sentenced. But there was something unusually compelling about the bearing of Niels L. Hoyvald and John F. Lavery as they stood before Judge Thomas C. Platt of the United States District Court in Brooklyn last month - especially in light of what they were being sentenced for. As president and vice president of the Beech-Nut Nutrition Corporation, Hoyvald and Lavery had sold millions of bottles of apple juice that they knew to contain little or no apple juice at all - only sugars, water, flavoring and coloring. The consumers of this bogus product were babies."  
  4. ^ a b "Death Toll Stands at 18 Italy Jolted by Poisoning, Halts All Exports of Wine". Los Angeles Times. April 9, 1986. Retrieved 2009-07-20. "An industry source in Rome said he doubts that any of the polluted wine has reached the United States. The Italian Wine and Food Institute, which represents Italian wine exporters in New York, was quoted here as saying that all Italian wine shipped to the United States is subjected to strict quality control in order to win the Italian government's seal of approval. Italy ships more wine to the United States than any other wine-producing nation, but most of its wine exports go to France and Germany, in that order, much of it in bulk for use in cutting domestic wines with higher-alcohol Italian varieties. It is far worse in scale than the scandal that virtually eliminated Austrian wines from the market last year. Some Austrian wine makers were found to have added ethylene glycol, a toxic, sweetening element, to their wines, and the discovery wiped out export sales. Ethylene glycol is also used in antifreeze. There were no known fatalities from the tainted Austrian wine."  
  5. ^ "Mercury Poisoning in Iraq Is Said to Kill 100 to 400". New York Times. March 9, 1972. Retrieved 2009-07-20. "Informed travelers from Baghdad say Iraq is in the grip of a severe mercury-poisoning outbreak. The travelers, who arrived last night, reported that 100 to 400 people had died since the outbreak began early in February."  
  6. ^ "Bradford Poisonings". The Hobart Town Daily Mercury. February 5, 1859. Retrieved 2009-07-20. "The affair of the poisoned lozenges at Bradford details an amount of carelessness which would be ludicrous were it not so horrible."
