Nope, no typos up there. Apparently, a fellow handing out yogurt samples at Sunflower Market in Albuquerque plead guilty to er…”contaminating” the yogurt and using a spoon tainted with his semen.

This would be hilarious in a movie, maybe, but in real life it’s pretty horrifying. Anthony Garcia has been in jail since the summer and is just facing sentencing now. According to the folks at Food Safety News:

Garcia, 32, pleaded guilty to charges of adulterating food and making false statements to federal investigators.The woman told police that after tasting the sample, she spit on the floor several times and wiped her mouth on the garment she was wearing to get the taste out of her mouth. Investigators collected samples of the woman’s spit from the floor and took the garment she was wearing as evidence.

He’s facing three years in prison for handing out the tainted samples.

    This makes me happy that I stay FAR AWAY from processed foods if possible. Once I heard about a friend that worked at a Velveeta plant and his co-worker’s favorite activity was to take a leak in the huge melted pot of cheese product. Yep! ick!

    So making my own yogurt is definitely a good thing.
