More Peanut Problems

Oh, great.
In addition to the recent FDA announcement that Peanut Corporation of America’s peanut processing plant in Blakely, GA, found Salmonella typhimurium contamination in some of its products, another prior problem with the company’s peanut butter ingredients has surfaced. Last September, a shipment of peanuts from the same plant linked to the Salmonella outbreak was held at the United States/Canada border because it contained a “filthy, putrid or decomposed substance, or is otherwise unfit for food,” (the problem later identified as metal fragments). The shipment was logged into FDA’s Oasis system, which is designed to prevent shipments into the United States of unsafe foreign products, but never was tested by federal inspectors, according to government records. - Food Product Design
