* In both canon, and in the works of Creator/AAPessimal, the Guild of Assassins' School now has its Domestic Science department. As with any school teaching young ladies the rudiments of cooking and domestic management, a lot of what it does is unremarkable and straightforward and to be found in any girls' school anywhere. Until the girls enter the Fifth Year and go On The Black, that is. Then they learn other food-and-beverage related skills.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "The Conscience of the King". Someone tries to murder Kevin Riley by putting tetralubisol (a shipboard lubricant) in his milk. Tetralubisol is a milky white substance, so MakeItLookLikeAnAccident also applies.

** The episode "Babel" had a [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters terrorist]] device that spiked the food and drink replicators with an aphasia virus that ended up never being dispersed because the virologist who planted it got captured. O'Brien accidentally trips the device while making repairs, and it eventually becomes aerosolized.
** "Ties of Blood and Water" features a bottle of poisoned kanar. Weyoun gleefully downs a shot of the kanar just to demonstrate that his people are immune to poison.

* Pops up a few times in ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. In "Foul Play In the Sky", Rita learns that Kimberly will be going for a plane ride with her uncle Steve. Seeing an opportunity to be rid of a Ranger, Rita sends Squatt and Baboo to spike Steve's soda with a delayed-action sleeping potion so that he'll fall asleep while the plane is in the air and it'll crash. In "Power Ranger Punks", Baboo spikes the Rangers' after-game fruit juice with a personality-altering potion that turns Billy and Kimberly (who drink first) into slacker punks with no interest in attending to their Ranger duties. In "Rita's Pita", Rita observes Tommy advise a kid he's teaching martial arts to to eat healthier foods and not binge eat. She puts a shrunken monster in Tommy's pita that will make him start binging on junk food, banking on the Rangers bringing Tommy to the command center ASAP to find out what caused the sudden 180 and unwittingly taking the monster with them.

* This a rather common killing method in ''Manga/DetectiveConan''. More of the cases are actually subversions of this trope since the poison was not put on the food directly but in objects the killer know their victims would touch before eating their foods.

** Subverted when [[spoiler: a JerkAss IdolSinger fell dead after eating some rice balls... but the poison was ''not'' originally in said snacks. It was placed in a specific spot of his jacket: the killer knew that [[FlungClothing the guy liked to melodramatically take off said jacket before singing]], so they put it in that spot so he'd touch the venom and 'transfer' it to the rice balls when he grabbed them to eat them.]]

* Putting harmful substances in food happen quite often in ''Manga/KindaichiCaseFiles''.
** In "Santa's Slayings (European Hotel Murder Case)", a stage actress was murdered after drinking wine during a play in a scene where her co-performers also chose randomly from a bunch of them. [[spoiler:The killer wrote a footnote in her script to pick a certain glass during that part. Since the victim could memorize lines only from reading once, the killer had no trouble disposing of it.]]
** One of the victims in "Gokumon Cram School Murder Case" was given laxative with a similar method with Conan's filler episode above; The poison was put in everyone's lunch, and the antidote was put in all provided buckwheat tea. Since the victim was allergic to buckwheat products, she couldn't eat the antidote. It was done so that the victim would go to have toilet break during lessons, leading the victim to the murderer.

* Subverted in ''Manga/DetectiveSchoolQ'', where a food critic is found dead in front of his almost untouched dinner. [[spoiler: There was ''zero'' poison in the food; the victim actually was strangled by the assistant he just fired in very humiliating circumstances. The meals were made with out-of-due ingredients to cover up details about the time of death]].

** Another case has Ran falling victim to poisoned coffee and then almost being drowned to death by the killer of the week. [[spoiler: In a subversion, the guy didn't want to kill ''her'', only knock out whoever drank the poisoned coffee to give himself an alibi.]]

* One of the many methods of killing in the ''VideoGame/{{Hitman}}'' series is to put poison into food or drink, that gets delivered to the target/ victim. It's such a staple of the franchise, that as of VideoGame/Hitman2016, almost all of the story mission targets can be poisioned if they eat or drink ''something''.
