Man who tampered with Nurofen Plus is jailed

29th May 2012

Christopher McGuire, a man who put anti-psychotic drugs into packets of Nurofen Plus, has been sentenced to 18 months in prison.

At Southwark Crown Court, judge Alistair McCreath said to McGuire: "Your acts caused very considerable financial harm, amounting to well over £2m. The costs included recalling the product, destroying suspect stock, investigating the problem which you caused, returning new products to the market and handling the reputational damage caused by you. In short, the harm you actually caused or might have caused by your acts was very high."
