Canada Food Inspection Agency list of contaminated products from the Peanut Corp. of America in Georgia, including pet food products. About a third of the way down the page is the list of products manufactured in America.
Even though federal health officials have begun a criminal investigation into whether the Peanut Corporation of America deliberately sold contaminated products, the government still needed the company’s permission last week before announcing a huge recall of its products. —NYTimes online

The FDA needed the permission of the Peanut Corp. of America prior to announcing a peanut product recall because the product was contaminated with salmonella? WTF is with that? Even that backwater nation known as Canada published the list of contaminated products from Peanut Corp. of America before the FDA had “permission”.
Let’s see now…
Salmonella? Can’t be. No way. Let’s see what the Peanut Corp. of America says about it first before we actually do anything. Quote: “Peanut Corporation of America will update this page as facts dictate.”
Really? I think they mean that they’ll publish an update after they dictate to the FDA what will be said.
It would seem the eight-year long nightmare the world was having isn’t over yet. But then, nothing so involved would ever truly happen overnight — unless it too was a nightmare.
