A Kiel man is convicted in federal court of tampering with food at the Johnsonville Sausage Plant in Sheboygan County.

Jonathan Lane was arrested back in March. Officials say lane put cigarette paper and a wire connector in sausage links.

According to the company, because of the risks, Johnsonville closed down the operation and threw out all products they believe could have been affected and none of the tampered food left their facilities.
