One or more blackmailers have threatened to poison food products in shops in Germany and elsewhere in Europe, unless they are given millions in cash, police warned on Thursday.

Authorities have urged the public to be vigilant about signs of tampering, releasing a surveillance camera image of the suspect, a man aged around 50 wearing glasses and a white cap.

According to the press, the blackmailer poisoned five baby food products and last week alerted police to the store they were placed in, in the southern city of Friedrichshafen.

“We take this threat very seriously,” said chief prosecutor Alexander Boger in a televised press conference. (MTI)
