peanut butter

I was so upset to read this latest article from the Consumer's Union. Apparently PCA, the company responsible for the salmonella-contaminated peanut butter that has killed a number of people and sickened many more has declared bankruptcy. This effectively removes them from any legal due process being brought against them. The worst part is that they knew and ignored the fact that their product was contaminated as reported here.

The best that we can hope for at this point is that there are no further illnesses or deaths and that this will bring about much needed changes to our food-supply system.
