Federal health officials have begun a criminal investigation into the actions of the Peanut Corporation of America, which they said knowingly sold contaminated peanut butter and peanut products to major food makers.
The investigation is being conducted by the Food and Drug Administration and the Justice Department, according to Dr. Stephen F. Sundlof, director of the food center at the F.D.A.The agency rarely discloses criminal investigations that are in progress, but did so in this case after several influential members of Congress demanded a criminal investigation in recent days.
I am not opposed to people making a profit. I am opposed to people who worship profit so much that they kill. I am opposed to people who worship profit so much they injure and kill their workers. I am opposed to people that worship profit so much they destroy the environment. I believe workers should be able to profit from their labor.
