Lawyer tours Plainview peanut plant linked to salmonella

PLAINVIEW, TEXAS (AP) - An attorney representing victims of the salmonella outbreak says a tour of Peanut Corporation of America's Plainview plant showed visible leaks and places where animals could get in.

State inspectors had found dead rodents in the plant shortly after it closed down February 9. Attorney Bill Marler toured the plant Wednesday with several experts, mainly looking at the structure of the plant, in relation to his lawsuits. The company's bankruptcy lawyer didn't immediately return a call Wednesday.

Thursday Marler will tour the company's plant in Blakely, Georgia, which was at the heart of the salmonella outbreak that sickened hundreds and was linked to the deaths of at least nine people.
