    This company sounds like it should be in China. I hope the board is charged with murder!

    They still have some of the recalled products on the stores here in Indiana, one of the TV stations did an expose on it.


    I threw out everything that had peanuts in it in my house, even if they weren't recalled.

    Better safe than sorry.

    It does not suprise me. We came upon a farmer some years back taking beans out of his bins that had been flooded. He had been paid for them yet was selling them again when they were supposed to be destroyed. I did not get the full concept of it for a few years until Rod told me how the food industry works.

    Whatever was in the beans went into the food chain.

    I agree these guys need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
