Salmonella - They Knew

If they knew their product had the bacteria (which this article says they did) then I think they should be tried for murder.  I believe their has been deaths due to this in the peanut butter.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

This guy just needs to go out of buisness.

Peanut Co. owner refuses to testify to Congress

WASHINGTON – The owner of a peanut company refused to testify to Congress on Wednesday amid the disclosure that he urged his workers to ship bacteria-tainted products, pleading with federal health officials that he should be able "turn the raw peanuts on the floor into money."

Stewart Parnell, owner of Peanut Corp. of America, repeatedly invoked his right not to incriminate himself before the House subcommittee holding a hearing on a national salmonella outbreak blamed on his company. The outbreak has sickened some 600 people, may be linked to nine deaths — the latest reported in Ohio on Wednesday — and has resulted in one of the largest product recalls of more 1,800 items.

Parnell sat stiffly, his hands folded in his lap at the witness table, as Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., held up a clear jar of his company's products wrapped in crime scene tape and asked him if he would be willing to eat the food.

Is a tree as a rocking horse
An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .
