George Washington Carver would not be pleased...

Mr. Peanut, how very dapper
The Peanut Corp. is a dirty, dirty company, in all senses of the word. Read about salmonella, how the company shipped tainted products knowingly, and other things that will make you gasp. Shameful.

Don't recall much about George Washington Carver (or as I like to call him, The Original Mr. Peanut)? Get some learnin' here!

Mr. Peanut says, "Don't blame me, this isn't my company. I belong to Kraft, and I'm still safe to eat!"

Well but see, that’s just what happens when all these namby pamby do-gooders get all these government regulations hamstringing and interfering with the free market! Why if the dang government would just keep its nose out of the business of corporate America, why then – oh, wait a minute.

Maybe if Wall Street had eaten some of the Peanut Company's peanuts, we might still have our retirement money.

The amount of corporate greed at the expense of hardworking families is infuriating. In any other country, we would all be rioting in the streets, demanding executions!

"Let them eat cake."

Or salmonella-laced peanuts.

Thanks for the update, Who. I still can't believe those effers knowingly shipped tainted products, and hope the company goes down the tubes. There's just no effing excuse. (See rebecca's comment.)
