Criminal Charges brought against Peanut Corporation of America

Comments Off

Local eyewitness news reported that authorities began a criminal investigation into the Peanut Corporation of America’s (PCA) Georgia facility because of the link to the salmonella outbreak.

Throughout their investigation in the Georgia plant, FDA found a complete mess: a leaking roof, mold, and roaches.

This investigation into PCA comes after Minnesota officials found salmonella in an open tub of peanut butter manufactured by PCA. More information led to FDA finding PCA already had salmonella problems; however PCA continued to sell the products!

“They put the product on the shelf knowing that it had been infected, and I feel they should be responsible for the people they hurt.” Laura Minto, a mother of an infected 24 month old said recently.

The attorneys at the Atlanta law firm Childers & Schlueter, LLP are currently representing Laura Minto & her son in a suit against PCA.

As the criminal investigation into PCA continues, recalls of products that contain peanut butter or peanut paste continue. Check out FDA’s website for more information regarding recalls.

Symptoms of salmonella include Diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. If you or someone close to you has salmonella poisoning, you may want to contact the attorneys at Childers & Schlueter, LLP to see how they can help protect your legal rights.
