E-mails show he was worried about lost sales, disregarded salmonella tests

WASHINGTON - The owner of a peanut company urged his workers to ship tainted products after receiving test results identifying salmonella, imploring employees to "turn the raw peanuts on our floor into money," according to internal company e-mails disclosed Wednesday by a U.S. House of Representatives committee.

The company e-mails obtained by the House panel showed that Peanut Corp. of America owner Stewart Parnell ordered the shipments tainted with the bacteria because he was worried about lost sales.

At one point, Parnell said his workers "desperately at least need to turn the raw peanuts on our floor into money" and at another point told his plant manager to "turn them loose" after learning some peanuts were contaminated with salmonella.

See what happens when money-grubbing CEOs worry about "lost sales"? Consumers pay the price in the form of sickness or death.

This guy needs to be brought up on charges of criminal negligence and involuntary manslaughter.
