ConAgra Foods to Pay $11.2 Million to Settle Criminal Charge for Shipping Salmonella-Tainted Peanut Butter

ConAgra Foods agreed to pay $11.2 million to settle a federal charge that the company shipped Peter Pan peanut butter tainted with salmonella from a plant in Georgia, sickening more than 600 people and triggering a massive recall eight years ago. Federal prosecutors filed a single misdemeanour charge of shipping adulterated food against the company along with a plea deal in U.S. District Court in Georgia. No company executives were charged. The company agreed to pay $8 million in criminal fines, plus an additional $3.2 million in forfeitures to the federal government. ConAgra officials blamed moisture from a leaky roof and a malfunctioning sprinkler system at its Georgia production plant for helping salmonella bacteria grow on raw peanuts. ConAgra said it spent $275 million on upgrades and adopted new testing procedures before reintroducing Peter Pan peanut butter a few months after the recall.
