Peanut Butter: Criminal Charges!

This really irks me!! I love peanut butter!

From ABC: Georgia's top agriculture official is urging federal prosecutors to criminally investigate a peanut processing plant linked to a nationwide salmonella outbreak. The Food and Drug Administration says the Peanut Corporation of America plant in Georgia repeatedly shipped products it knew tested positive for salmonella.

Georgia's agriculture commissioner says the plant tried to hide those test results. Now lawmakers are asking the the Justice Department to determine if the case warrants prosecution.
The salmonella outbreak has sickened hundreds and may have contributed to eight deaths.
