Factory Knew of Salmonella

The source of a national outbreak of salmonella, a peanut processing plant in Georgia, ignored at least 12 of its own tests that found the bacteria, federal officials said. Eight people have died and over 500 were sickened by the outbreak, which was traced back to the Peanut Corporation of America's facility in Blakely, GA. After each positive salmonella test, the firm took no action to clean the plant.
