Dead Rodents Found in Peanut Plant

Posted by PKSD Law Firm on Feb 16, 2009 in Foodborne Illness

Yesterday, the Texas Department of State Health Services ordered the recall of all products ever shipped from the Peanut Corporation of Americas plan in Plainview, Texas, after a health services inspection found dead rodents, rodent excrement and bird feathers in a crawl space.

The plant's ventilation system pulled the debris from the crawl space and into production areas, effecting the exposed food products.

Tests are being performed to determine if the products contain salmonella. The plant isn't allowed to resume operation until health services approval. The recall applies to products that have been shipped since the plant first opened in March 2005.
