Sweet but deadly
ejrjr from Studio City, CA

Charles Bickford hosts this crime drama series produced by Bernard J.
Prockter. This still timely episode features an inspector for the Food
and Drug Administration sent to Hunter, VA as townspeople become
seriously ill. Eventually, the FDA agent learns that a local woman who
bakes and sells fruit cakes from her home is the problem source.
However, she is near death in a local hospital and fruit cakes are
still in the hands of the public. Moreover, the FDA laboratory confirms
arsenic poisoning as the cause of illness, so FDA inspectors must learn
how such is getting in the fruit cakes.
The script is still relevant and while the drama is slightly contrived,
this is still an entertaining and enlightening episode. I cannot speak
for the series because this is the only episode I have watched.
However, I would eagerly watch others. This was produced by
Conne-Stephens Inc for Bernard Prockter Television Services, Inc.
