Bakery worker accused of tampering with bread


Authorities said a bakery employee in the region has been arrested after being accused of tampering with bread.

The Muskegon County prosecutor's office said 22-year-old Adam Brooks is accused of putting pieces of a metal cooling rack into bread. He’s been charged with poisoning or placing a harmful substance into a food product.

He was arrested Tuesday after other employees at R.W. Bakers in Norton Shores notified management.

Authorities said none of the bread ended up available for purchase or consumption.

“There is no public safety threat as a result of this incident, due to the quality-control safeguards, the proactive action and the remedial measures taken in this case," the prosecutor's office said.

The county public defender's office has been appointed to the case, but no lawyer has been assigned to Brooks.
