Terrorists plan to poison salad bars, CBS reports

Security experts from the U.S. restaurant and hotel industries have been warned by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that terrorists plan to poison a large number of salad bars in a coordinated attack on an upcoming weekend, CBS reported this evening.

The network said it had confirmation from an unidentified intelligence report that the threat is credible.

Homeland Security declined to comment, CBS reported, but it quoted a spokesman as observing that terrorists have said they'd pursue unconventional attacks.

As of this writing, CBS appears to be the only news medium to be carrying the story.
