Criminal Charges in Peanut Recall?

28 01 2009

Saw this on LSJ.com this afternoon.

Over the last two years, Peanut Corp. of America found salmonella in a dozen internal tests of its products, but shipped them anyway after getting new tests. The Food and Drug Administration says the company did not initially disclose that to investigators trying to solve the current salmonella outbreak.

The company’s actions “can only be described as reprehensible and criminal,” said Rep.

This behavior represents the worst of our current food safety regulatory system.”

Whoops.
