Albany – A criminal investigation is underway at Albany Medical Center after mercury was discovered in the hospital’s cafeteria.  The toxic metal was discovered Friday and there is the possibility it was intentionally placed in the hospital’s food.  A hospital employee found a tiny metal ball on her food tray.  The cafeteria was quickly closed and the hospital’s hazmat team combed the room.  More minuscule balls of mercury were found around the cafeteria.
