JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville man has been indicted on charges of product tampering after he returned used enemas to a store for refunds.
Federal prosecutors said on Thursday that Ronald Eugene Robinson, 34, of Jacksonville, is alleged to have bought 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.
If convicted, Robinson faces a maximum penalty of up to ten years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
This case was investigated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Office of Criminal Investigations and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
