Man Guilty of Threatening Babies on YouTube

MANHATTAN (CN) - A man faces up to 5 years in prison for posting three videos on YouTube announcing that he had poisoned millions of bottles of Gerber baby food, to kill babies. Anton Dunn, 43, of Manhattan, pleaded guilty to a federal charge of transmitting threats in interstate commerce, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

Dunn called himself Trashman in the videos. In the third one, he claimed that four babies already had died. Gerber and the U.S. Attorney's Office said there is no evidence that any baby food was tampered with, or that any babies died.
