Jacksonville Man Indicted For Product Tampering

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 11, 2012

Jacksonville, Florida - United States Attorney Robert E. O'Neill announces the unsealing of an indictment charging Ronald Eugene Robinson (34, Jacksonville) with tampering with consumer products. If convicted, Ronald Eugene Robinson faces a maximum penalty of up to ten years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.

Pursuant to the indictment, Robinson is alleged to have purchased several pre-packaged CVS Pharmacy Ready-to-Use Enemas between April 10, 2012, and June 15, 2012. After using the enemas, Robinson resealed the items and returned them to CVS for refunds, claiming they were unused. Several of the used enemas were returned to CVS shelves and re-sold to unsuspecting customers. It is believed that all customers have been notified of the tainted purchases. CVS has fully cooperated in the investigation and in the notification of potential victims.

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed a violation of the federal criminal laws, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.

This case was investigated by the United States Food and Drug Administration, Office of Criminal Investigations and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jay Taylor.
