PCA Salmonella Claims Adding Up

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

With a Monday deadline  approaching, it appears that claims against Peanut Corp. of America (PCA) will exceed $200 million.    PCA is the company that produced Salmonella-tainted peanut  ingredients responsible for a massive outbreak earlier this year.  Because of the outbreak, the company filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy protection earlier this year.

According to The News & Advance,  the claims against the Lynchburg, VA-based company include 8 for wrongful death.  Each of those claims is seeking damages in the  amount of $10 million.  Another 86  claims, filed by people who were sickened by PCA ingredients, seek $1 million each.  About 65 other claims filed as of  Thursday were from food companies that used PCA’s ingredients, The News & Advance said. 

The News & Advance is also reporting that PCA held two insurance policies for product liability which could be used to compensate people who filed injury and death claims. However, its insurance company filed suit to determine whether it must pay claims filed by victims of the Salmonella outbreak.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), peanut paste, peanut butter and other PCA products sickened more than 700 people around the country.  Because PCA supplied peanut ingredients to hundreds of other food companies, the number of  recalls related to the Salmonella outbreak came close to 4,000.

PCA is now the focus of a criminal probe being conducted by the US Justice Department.   In February, the FBI executed search warrants at the PCA Georgia plant and at its headquarters in Virginia.  Evidence has also emerged that PCA knowingly shipped products that had tested positive for Salmonella.  In February, PCA owner Stewart Parnell had been subpoenaed to testify at a  Congressional hearing into the outbreak, and although he appeared, he invoked his constitutional right not to incriminate himself.
