Are you as consumers as ticked off as me to see announcements like this? Wonder which "consumer-concerned
company" holds the record for biggest delay in reporting a recalled food product?

Why do they even bother to do the recall now? Whatever they produced has already been eaten!! Angry
I wouldn't buy their products now, no matter what. If they can't be trusted to recall something in a timely fashion, when the whole country basically stopped eating peanuts, who knows what else they're doing that we wouldn't like!

Got my coffee,
Got my cigarettes,
Got my computer
and took my Prozac...
It's gonna be a great day!

Impacts of the 2008-09 Foodborne Illness Outbreak Linked to Salmonella in Peanuts

The 2009 foodborne illness outbreak linked to Salmonella in peanut products resulted in one of the largest food safety recalls ever in the United States. The source of the outbreak handled a small share of the U.S. peanut supply, but the scope of the recalls was magnified because the peanut products were used as ingredients in more than 3,900 products. Consumer purchases of peanut-containing products initially slowed during the recalls, but retail purchases soon returned to normal and peanut processing held steady. The recalls do not appear to have had a lasting impact on peanut demand and production.

Sound familiar?

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution and AP, over 100 victims of last year's nationwide salmonella outbreak will split $12 million as part of a bankruptcy settlement with the insurer of the company linked to the illnesses.

Unless and until the penalties fit the crimes of random premeditated murder for selling deadly food products, I think personally it will just keep happening over and over again. And Stewart Parnell will be back in business under another name in the next couple of years making far more money than this settlement. To my knowledge, no criminal charges have ever been filed for any one of the nine deaths.

Maybe the penance of being bankrupt was punishment enough. Tellin' ya - no penalty, no nothing - just a license to keep right on doing whatever it is these places do. From the faulty tires that were on all those ford vehicles I saw then that the places that made these tires had no conscience if they would let their friends or family drive vehicles with these faulty tires on them. THEY DON'T CARE.

May your troubles be less,
Your blessings be more,
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door

 PCA is about to Pay $12,750,000, but Stewart Parnell is not in Jail
... Last fall, the bankruptcy court set up a $12 million fund using money from Peanut Corp. insurance policies to pay the personal injury claims of people who had been sickened by the salmonella. Eventually 123 claims were submitted by people who had suffered from salmonella poisoning or whose relatives had died from it.

According to court documents, most claims are valued at $100,000 or less. One is valued at more than $2 million. Eight of the claims involve wrongful death claims, and 44 involve minors who became sick.
