Salmonella found at ConAgra facility

FDA investigators have found two sources of Salmonella after inspecting the ConAgra facility.  The roaster and some cleaning supplies were contaminated and they assume the bacteria will be found in other places as well.  Full story from WALB.com

Sylvester, GA – FDA investigators finally have some details on the location of that Salmonella outbreak that shut down the Sylvester ConAgra Foods plant five weeks ago. Thursday, ConAgra Foods blamed a $48 million loss this quarter on its recall of Peter Pan and Great Value Peanut Butter and there’s still no timetable of when production will start back.

It’s been five weeks since the lines at ConAgra Foods looked like this and it could be the end of May before production resumes. The clean up can begin now that the FDA has pin-pointed the cause.
