UNIVERSITY of Manitoba officials issued a warning Wednesday after an employee’s water bottle was tampered with.

The employee worked at the Bannatyne Campus, and officials believe the tampering happened on May 9 or 10.

A notice sent out to the university said police and the university’s security services were looking into “what appears to be an intentional contamination of an employee’s personal water bottle with a noxious substance.”

A university spokesman said the incident is believed to be isolated. The water bottle was in a “place that wouldn’t have been available to just anybody,” he said, and the employee noticed it had a “discolouration.”

Employees of the university were cautioned Wednesday not to leave any drinks, food or lunch boxes unattended and to report any suspected tampering to the university’s security services.

The university spokesman said the employee sought medical help as a result of the incident.

The person is not academic staff, the spokesman said.
