Unless you hang out with Osama Bin Laden in the caves of Afganistan, you're probably aware of the largest food product recall in history.Everything EVER MADE with ingredients from Peanut Corp of America have been recalled.The FDA has an automated email notification service which tells subscribers whenever a recall notice is issued. I wasn't sure why, at the time, but when I subscribed to this service, I decided to use a seperate email address for these notices....and boy, I sure am glad I did.I usually only check this email account 2-4 times per month, just to keep up to speed on recalls. Sometimes I check it for business reasons, but mostly to make sure my kid isn't eating anything dangerous.When I logged in to this account today, I had a whopping 697 emails in my Inbox!EVERY SINGLE ONE IS RELATED TO PEANUT INGREDIENTS.The list of companies recalling products is the Who's Who of the Food Manufacturing Industry.If you visit Peanut Corp's website is what you first see:Peanut Corporation of America"As you may know, certain recent events have made it necessary for Peanut Corporation of America to seek protection under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Effective immediately, all corporate operations will cease. Any questions regarding the company or the operations of its affiliates, Plainview Peanut Co, LLC and Tidewater Blanching, LLC, should be forwarded to Mr. Andy Goldstein, the company's bankruptcy council at 540-343-9800"The FDA has put this recall issue at the top center of their front page.www.fda.govand they have devoted an entire page to the recalls. first full sentence on this page states:"The Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) has announced that because of its bankruptcy proceedings, it is no longer able to communicate with customers of recalled products"NO SHIT SHERLOCK! Why would they want to? Besides, based on what we know now, who would actually believe anything they said anyway?So what we have here, is basically the Enron/AIG/Wall Street/Weapons of Mass Destruction fiascos.....all wrapped in a nice To-Go box to enjoy later.We have greed, selfishness, incompetence, some more greed, ignorance of a spectacular magnitude, attemps at cover-up, manslaughter bordering on murder and pure insanity.So how do we stop the insanity? By stopping the insane. Every single person at PCA who is charged and convicted with a crime shoud never be allowed to work in any food related business again. Assuming that they ever get out of prison.I, for one, think they should be fed all the recalled products they intentionally contaminated, as part of the sentence. At least the taxpayers wouldn't be burdened with their prison meal costs.Just to make my point about how large the recall is.....Browse by Peanut Containing ProductsTopics on this PageBrownie Product

  • Steve, this is just hideous....the indiffence that is generated by need for money is the root cause of so many issues in society today. Sometimes the greatest strengths of our capitalistic society can be our greatest weakness.
  • There is a sentence I wrote in this blog post which contains some pretty harsh words.
    Specifically "manslaughter bordering on murder"

    "We have greed, selfishness, incompetence, some more greed, ignorance of a spectacular magnitude, attemps at cover-up, manslaughter bordering on murder and pure insanity".

    I'm not going to delete the words, but I am going to explain my logic in using such strong language. After all, I'd rather not get sued for slander.

    This quote from the World Health Organization
    "Salmonellosis.....Millions of human cases are reported worldwide every year and the disease results in thousands of deaths".

    It is a scientifically known fact that a percentage of people who contract Salmonella Poisoning will die.

    Therefore, if one knowingly distributes a contaminated product to the masses, it should be safe to assume that several will get sick and some will die. There's no way these people didn't know the risk. Shipping on a prayer.

    Hence, I feel my harsh words were justified.
  • I think one could surmise there's a little bit of China Syndrome going on here as well.
    To explain.....a lot of the problems we've had with Chinese made items and ingredients can be traced back to American customers/importers demanding lower prices, ...quality and safety be damned.

    Peanut Corp's ingredients were deeply penetrated in the ingredient category for manufacturers.....because they were the cheapest.

    But of course, their competitors have now been dragged into the sinkhole PCA dug.
  • Horrifying beyond imagination...So many great companies bought these contaminated products. The bad thing is that this type of negligence goes on all the time in our food chain, it seems - from meat packing to poultry and on and on. What's safe anymore and how are we supposed to know if we can't rely on federal inspectors to make sure for us that our food is "pure"?
