A man has been jailed for two years for contaminating food with semen.

Anthony Garcia has admitted adding a bodily fluid sample to a yogurt sample while working at a grocery store in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

He then approached a customer and offered her a sample of yogurt.

According to the court, the customer accepted the sample, tasted it, immediately spat it out and asked to speak to the store manager.

Garcia then tossed the yogurt sample into the store’s trash compactor.

The 32-year-old admitted to being charged with tampering with food and making false statements during a criminal investigation.

He admitted lying to investigators by telling them he didn’t know the spoon he put in the yoghurt contained semen.

The incident happened last January.

Along with the prison sentence, Garcia will be on probation for three years after serving his sentence.

He was also ordered to compensate the victim for his criminal behavior.

According to court documents, the investigation revealed that Garcia had targeted at least four other women in the same way.

During sentencing, the judge called Garcia’s conduct “abhorrent.”

Several customers at the supermarket where Garcia worked were targeted by the 32-year-old

US Attorney Gonzales said: ‘This conduct at issue in this case is no joke and it’s not funny. It is criminal, and Garcia’s sentence should serve as a warning to those who deliberately adulterate food for the purpose of harming innocent consumers, or as malicious pranks, or for deviant sexual gratification.

“My office will continue to work with the FDA to vigorously investigate and prosecute this type of criminal behavior.”

Patrick J. Holland, Special Agent in Charge of the FDA Office of Criminal Investigations, said: This sentence reflects the seriousness of this crime.

“The FDA’s Office of Criminal Investigations will continue to investigate and bring to justice those who adulterate food at the expense of unsuspecting consumers. We commend the United States Attorney’s Office for their commitment to this case.
