Shocking video shows a shopper at Walmart gargling Listerine before spitting it back into the bottle and then returning the bottle to the shelf.
Nicole Smith is the shopper in question. She is filmed saying, “Girl, it has been one misty f*cking morning.” She then opens the Listerine bottle, takes a swig, gargles, and then spits the mouthwash back into the bottle before commenting, “Mmm, nice and minty and fresh.” Then she says, “thank you guys” and struts off down the aisle.
The video went viral and many people started commenting and complained that Smith’s act is a crime and are calling for her punishment. One person commented: “Another one for prison. Hope you have fun with your new inmate friends,” to which she replied, “I looked in the cell next to me and it’s the ice cream girl.”
Larz, a friend of Smith claimed that he started the trend of opening products at grocery stores and not buying them. He also appeared in a video that showed him grabbing ice cream with his hands from a tub, scooping it into his mouth, and then putting it back.
In response to this, Blue Bell Creameries ice cream stated: ‘We want to thank our consumers for alerting us to the recent food tampering incident. We take this issue very seriously and are currently working with law enforcement, retail partners and social media platforms. This type of incident will not be tolerated.
Food safety is a top priority, and we work hard to provide a safe product and maintain the highest level of confidence from our consumers. ‘During production, our half gallons are flipped upside down and sent to a hardening room where the ice cream freezes to the lid creating a natural seal. The lids are frozen tightly to the carton. Any attempt at opening the product should be noticeable. We will continue to monitor this situation.”
And about the mouthwash incident, here’s what people from Walmart said: “We are investigating this incident. If someone tampers with a product and leaves it on the shelf, we will work with law enforcement to identify and prosecute those found responsible to the fullest extent of the law.”
