Investigators believe the cyanide poisoning of a New Jersey teen-ager is an isolated incident, but said they were looking into a possibility it may be linked to an unsolved tampering case of two years ago. The last known death or injury in New Jersey from product tampering was in September, 1986, when a Runnemede man died after eating a small amount of soup that contained cyanide. Thomas Lee, 17, of Haddonfield, lapsed into a coma after eating about a third of an 8-ounce container of Breyer’s black cherry yogurt. Lee remained on a respirator at West Jersey Hospital-Voorhees, said spokesman Ed Kanis.
