I haven't seen anyone post about this issue. I wanted to post it so that people could check to make sure they don't have food from Peanut Corp. of America. Under the article, I have posted the fda website so that you can see the list of products affected.
I hope the head honcho is charged with serious crimes. People died from the salmonella poisoning.
Recall of Products Containing Peanut Butter: Salmonella TyphimuriumPeanut firm boss urged shipping bad products
E-mails show owner worried about lost sales, disregarded salmonella tests
WASHINGTON - The owner of a peanut company urged his workers to ship tainted products after receiving test results identifying salmonella, imploring employees to "turn the raw peanuts on our floor into money," according to internal company e-mails disclosed Wednesday by a U.S. House of Representatives committee.
The company e-mails obtained by the House panel showed that Peanut Corp. of America owner Stewart Parnell ordered the shipments tainted with the bacteria because he was worried about lost sales.
At one point, Parnell said his workers "desperately at least need to turn the raw peanuts on our floor into money," and at another point told his plant manager to "turn them loose" after learning some peanuts were contaminated with salmonella.
