Tylenol Cyanide Scare- In 1982 seven Chicago-area people died after taking medicine capsules that had been poisoned. These poisonings involved Extra-Strength Tylenol capsules, which had been laced with potassium cyanide. The incident led to reforms in the packaging of medicines and food products. The case remains unsolved and no suspects have been charged. A $ 100,000 reward, offered by Johnson & Johnson, for the capture and conviction of the "Tylenol Killer", has never been claimed."
