2/18/2010...THE STATE NEWSPAPER, COLUMBIA SOUTH CAROLINA.
The Army has been looking for two months into allegations an attempt was being made to poison soldiers at Fort Jackson through the food supply, but the largest basic training post in South Carolina says no credible information to support the allegations has been found.
Fort Jackson issued this statement late Thursday night 2/18/2010: "In December 2009, five Soldiers were investigated for potential verbal threats against fellow Soldiers. While the investigation continues there is currently no credible evidence to substantiate the allegations. At no time was there any danger to the Fort Jackson community."
A local law enforcement official familiar with the reports who insisted on anonymity said Thursday that there was no attempt made to poison any soldiers, adding that a rumor started when several disgruntled soldiers shot their mouths off late last year. There was never any threat, nothing credible, he insisted.
