Packaging, glue taken from Pa. home in product tampering probe

Associated Press

Police investigating product tampering seized medication packaging, glue, jars and white cream during the search of a home in the Harrisburg suburbs.

An affidavit used to get the warrant executed on Friday at a Mechanicsburg home says the suspect returned items to the same grocery store at least 24 times since late January.

The affidavit says the suspect returned toothpaste, eye cream, pain relief cream and shampoo that had been tampered with.

Police say they don’t yet know what substance was used to refill the containers but warn it could be dangerous for anyone to use.

The items were returned to stores in the West Shore suburbs.

Authorities say they have no reports of people being sickened but want those who purchased tampered items to call police.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
