Texas Product Liability Attorney on Plainview peanut product recall!

Dallas, TX (TopWireNews.Com)–The Texas Department of Health discovered over a week ago Peanut Corporation of America’s Plainview, Texas peanut processing plant had been operating unlicensed and uninspected since 2005. After state inspectors reported unsanitary conditions, the peanut butter maker was ordered to recall all peanut products produced and shipped from the Plainview plant on Thursday reported the Dallas Morning News.

The Texas Department of State Health Services placed pressure on the West Texas plant officials to voluntarily close operations on Monday for an undetermined “temporary” period. Peanut Corp. of America’s Blakely, Georgia peanut plant became the center of a nationwide salmonella poisoning which sickened over 600 consumers and caused 8 deaths in 44 states. This has become one of the largest product recalls in Amercian history with the pulling of over 2,000 consumer food products off shelves nationwide, including Canada.

Peanut Corp of America, headquartered in Virginia, is now recalling 88,000 pounds of peanut products most recently shipped from the Plainview, Texas plants because of salmonella bacteria concerns. The Texas Department of Health determined the plant poses an immediate and serious threat to human health and life when inspectors discovered a crawl space directly above the peanut processing area of the plant containing dead rodents, feces and bird feathers. Texas state health officials have released preliminary findings and remain conducting an in-depth overall inspection of the manufacturing facility.
