Not the children, y’all. SMH. They’re saying money-grubbing bastards out in GA knowingly shipped peanut butter that was infested with salmonella out to vendors:
The Georgia company whose peanut products have been blamed for a nationwide salmonella outbreak shipped some products even though they had tested positive for the bacteria and no other tests indicated they were safe, the Food and Drug Administration said Friday.
Previously, Peanut Corporation of America had said it shipped products only after subsequent tests on them came back negative. Items made with its peanut products have been linked to more than 500 cases of illness, including eight deaths.
The agency said the company’s management told FDA inspectors last month during an inspection of the plant that they shipped products that first had tested positive for salmonella, but only if they later had tested negative.
But, it said, “FDA determined that certain information provided by PCA management during the inspection was not consistent with the subsequent analysis of the company’s records.”
As a result, the agency amended its report Thursday.
“In some situations the firm received a positive salmonella test result, followed by a later negative result, and then shipped the products,” said the FDA report, which was included in an e-mail to CNN. “In some other situations, the firm shipped the products [which had already tested positive] before it had received the [second] positive test results.”
By all means, get your paper, but at the safety of the churren?? Everyone knows that crumb-snatchers love peanut butter. Shame on them.
