    I remember this food poisoning incident. my thought at the time was that the whole thing could have been prevented with food irradiation and more oversight. my current opinion is that the whole thing could have been prevented with food irradiation and more oversight.

If he thinks we should just give it back to him WITHOUT sending him to jail, he should be laughed out of court and sent to a federal pound-me-in-the-ass penitentiary.

    Come on people, these guys won't see one second of jail time. Quit kidding yourself. The company will be fined about half the profits from the sale of the tainted peanuts, and will go on operating like nothing happened. Welcome to the libertarian dream.

    There are people, I think quite a few of them, who object to food irradiation. Remember the hubub when the process was introduced?

    Here's some of them.

    i'm well aware of the woo that surrounds food irradiation. the only problem i see with it is that beneficial bacteria are killed as well. if we ate nothing but irradiated food, that might become a problem. however, treating some produce (and peanut butter) is just plain smart.

    cooking inactivates more nutrients than irradiation. additionally, cooking meat creates heterocyclic amines, which can cause cancer. i don't see very many people arguing against cooking, though. only a tiny minority.

    i'd love to have labeled, irradiated options so that those who understand science can eliminate their risk of food poisoning. if everyone else wants to consume Salmonella and E. coli, more power to them. i don't.

    this issue is close to my heart, as i spent two years developing a natural food treatment that only works a fraction as well as irradiation. thanks to irradiation woo, i got to work one of the best jobs i've ever had. however, i still support irradiated options.

    I hope the head honcho is charged with serious crimes. People died from the salmonella poisoning.

    If true, he should be criminally prosecuted and have no corporate shield against civil liabilities. The management that went along with also should have the same exposure.

    In the Libertarian dream, peanut farmers like him would not get any subsidies.

    Libertarian solution: kill all federal subsidies to farmers. Done.

    As stated by one obviously not in touch with libertarian philosophy.
