LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Despite salmonella that made 700 people sick and killed nine others, federal inspectors have not stepped up their inspections of peanut facilities. That's according to a report in the Washington Post.
The salmonella outbreak was linked to the P.C.A. peanut plants in both Blakely Georgia and in nearby Plainview. Congress released photos of the Plainview plant, which show bird feathers, dead mice, and fecal matter.
The Washington Post says the federal Food & Drug Administration does not have enough inspectors, and routine tests for contamination are optional instead of required.
