Ricky Lee Adami, 55, stands accused of tainting the cheese during his regular shift at Primo Pizza in Fayetteville.

Adami was reportedly preparing pizzas when the restaurant’s manager noticed “an unknown substance” amid the toppings. The manager immediately removed the food in question to prevent it from being served from customers, and then checked the business’s surveillance video.

“The substance Adami placed in the cheese is suspected to be rat poison.”

Adami has been charged with Distributing Food Containing Noxious / Deleterious Material. Adami is currently at Cumberland County Detention Center on a $100,000 secured bond.
