    WASHINGTON – Federal health officials say the Georgia peanut plant at the center of the salmonella outbreak knowingly shipped tainted products. Previously, the Food and Drug Administration had said Peanut Corp. of America retested products after getting an initial positive result for salmonella. The agency said the company shipped the goods after follow-up tests came back negative.

    But Friday, the FDA said the company sent out peanut butter, chopped peanuts and peanut meal that had tested positive even before it got back any negative findings.

    Peanut Corp. denies any wrongdoing. The government has opened a criminal investigation.

    Shameful if it''s true...[​IMG]

    Many people have gotten seriously ill, and some have died!! I wonder if those people in charge would feed their product to their own children or loved ones...

    yea.. ship out your poison product so you can make a little profit..
