salmonella4 Executive Tied To Salmonella Deaths Back In Business

The peanut industry executive whose filthy processing plants were blamed in a salmonella outbreak two years ago that killed two Minnesotans and seven other people is back in the business.

The Associated Press reports that Stewart Parnell, the former president of the now-bankrupt Peanut Corporation of America, is working as a consultant to peanut companies as the federal government’s criminal investigation against him has languished for more than 18 months.

Two Minnesotans, both in their 70’s, died after eating contaminated peanut butter at Brainerd nursing homes.
