People Are Replacing Baby Formula With Flour and It's Making Kids Sick

By

Just last month a video of a woman licking the top of a pint of ice cream went viral, with the Internet united in universal disgust. And while tampering with consumer food is a second-degree felony carrying between two and 20 years behind bars and as much as $10,000 in fines, the practice is unfortunately far from uncommon. 

Police are now investigating several cases of people swapping baby formula with flour and returning it to stores to get their money back and sell on the stolen formula. Unfortunately, some of those tampered products are making it back on to shelves according to WCNC, and it's making babies sick.
