NEW YORK (AP) — A man was arrested Thursday after he allegedly claimed in hoax Internet videos that he had poisoned millions of bottles of baby food, some with cyanide or rat poison, because he wanted to kill black and Hispanic children.
Gerber Products Co. and the Food and Drug Administration have found no evidence of tampering with Gerber products. The company was flooded with complaints after people saw the videos, the FDA said.
Authorities said Anton Dunn caused to be posted on the Internet three videos of himself in which he boasted about the poisonings and said he could not be caught.
Dunn, 42, of New York, was charged with sending threats in interstate commerce and falsely claiming to have tampered with a consumer product, crimes that carry a potential penalty of 10 years in prison upon conviction.
A U.S. District Court judge ordered Dunn held until a bail hearing on Tuesday. His lawyer, Sarah Baumgartel, had no comment outside court.
In a statement, Gerber's parent company, Nestle Nutrition, said it believed the Internet postings were a "malicious hoax" and the company was cooperating with authorities.
"The safety of Gerber and Nestle Nutrition products is our top priority," it said.
In court papers, FDA agent Michael Felezzola wrote that a Gerber representative on April 20 reported a threatening video entitled "gerbersbabyfoodalert" had been posted on YouTube.
In the 10-minute video, apparently recorded in a shower stall, a man identified as Trashman said Gerber employees acting at his direction had poisoned millions of bottles of baby food with the intent to kill babies.
Authorities said the person appearing on the videos was Dunn and he sometimes wore a mask that partially covered his face. Subsequent videos stated that the poisoning would involve cyanide and rat poison, and that four babies had already died.
Dunn, who is black, claimed in a July 24 video that he was trying to kill black and Hispanic babies, though white babies also were likely to die, authorities said.
"Our main reason for doing this is we're trying to cut down on the black population," the video says.

ISNT THIS THE SAME GUY THAT SUPPOSEDLY HAS AIDS/HIV AND INFECTED HUNDREDS OF TEENS??
IF SO, IM GLAD HIS AZZ IS IN JAIL.
Ok, I will say that I'm glad they got him, but I wanna know this?????? Where were the FEDS way b4 this baby food stunt, when he was infecting young women/men with HIV? Was that not important enough?
and he admitted to killing rapper stack bundles..
here's a pic of him-
I blame John McCain.
@FallynnRianTheDoll - If his victims were Black, I'm sure you already know the answer to that question.
THATS GOOD FOR HIS DUMB ***!!!
cat4everrr that doesn't look like him, this is him
[link to external website removed]
and I was wondering the same thing about him not getting arrested for saying he infected these women but he gets arrested for saying he poisoned baby food. The only explanation I can come up with is maybe these women have not taken legal action and Gerber did.
This is a simple stupid ***, he talking about killing off the black and hispanic race don't he know that white people are the biggest suporters of Gerber Food, they have scholarship foundations an all, and they arrest him for that but don't arrest him for saying that he knowingly gave all these women HIV and that's also a crime that's attempted murder or first degree murder but their mainly worrying about a false accusation of baby food poisoning what is this world coming to!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey SICK Isn't the WORD BETRAYFUL Is.
Dang I find that truly hard to BELIEVE he INFECTED 10,000 AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN? HELL to the NAW. What was these women THINKING *** like this man was some kind GOD/LORD/KING. whatever I BELIEVE NOT. This Is so COY this man Is below SHALLOW "Think about It with a name like trashman who would of figure that out"
But DID "Trashman" KILL "STACK BUNDELS"?
I heard that somewhere and JIM JONES WANTED HIM DESTROYED? Sad but true but please DON'T say that It WAS TRUE
