Immediate Investigation Announced After LSD-Tainted Walmart Meat Poisons Pregnant Woman and Her Family

A 9 month’s pregnant woman and her family began hallucinating after eating meat purchased from Walmart that was tainted with the drug LSD, according to a report from the Associated Press.

As the New York Post reports:

Authorities say a Florida woman who was 9 months pregnant and her family became ill after eating meat tainted with LSD.

Tampa police say doctors induced labor and the woman had a healthy baby boy. The entire family was eventually released from the hospital in good condition.

Tampa police say the family of four ate the tainted meat Monday. The Hillsborough County Medical Examiner’s Office reported Friday that the meat had been contaminated with the hallucinogenic drug.

Police say the bottom round steak was purchased from a Wal-Mart in Tampa. The store has turned over all its meat to police for testing.

Local police, along with county health officials and state and federal agriculture officials, are investigating how the drug got into the meat.

The Hillsborough County Medical Examiner’s Office, the Tampa police as well as the county health officials, state and federal agriculture officials started an immediate investigation into this matter. They needed to determine if this was a single incident or if more of the meat on the shelves of the Tampa Wal-Mart was also tainted with LSD too.#
