Correction: Salmonella Outbreak-Trial story

ALBANY, Ga. - In some versions of a story Aug. 7 about a trial related to a salmonella outbreak, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the outbreak occurred 15 years ago. It happened in 2008-09.

A corrected version of the story is below:

FDA agent: Peanut plant 'not fit' to produce food

FDA inspector: Georgia peanut plant knowingly shipped salmonella, 'not fit' to produce food

By RUSS BYNUM

Associated Press

A federal food safety inspector who investigated a deadly salmonella outbreak linked to a Georgia peanut plant says the company was "not fit to produce products for human consumption."

Janet Gray of the Food and Drug Administration testified Wednesday in the federal trial of three people charged with covering up contamination at the Peanut Corp. of America plant, and knowingly shipping infected nuts to customers.

The outbreak five years ago killed nine people and sickened more than 700 around the U.S.

Gray described company records for the jury that showed at least eight times when nuts were shipped after testing positive for salmonella. And she said equipment at the plant wasn't cleaned even after the salmonella showed up.
