Albuquerque shopper samples free man oysters

Employee cuffed for creamy yoghurt surprise

Build a business case: developing custom apps

A customer at a Sunflower Farmers Market store in Albuquerque got a real taste of healthy eating when an employee offered her a free sample of Greek yoghurt and semen.

The unnamed woman was shopping with her daughter on 26 January when Anthony Garcia, 31, served up a generous helping of man oysters.

The victim "tasted the yogurt and immediately spit it out, left the store and contacted authorities", according to KOB-TV.

A DNA test subseqently linked Garcia to the creamy goodness, and he may face a "battery charge", as well as possible action by the Food and Drug Administration over food tampering.

Albuquerque police spokeswoman Trish Hoffman said: “We have never dealt with a case like this in all the years I've been in law enforcement. It's horrific. It's horrific for the victim.”

Two more women have now come forward to report that Garcia pulled the same stunt on them in December and January, although Hoffman admitted "there is no way to prove the two new claims". ®
