Salmonella Peanut Butter Plant Owner Living Incarnation Of Evil Cartoon Character

Congressional testimony reveals that Stewart Parnell, owner of the Peanut Corp. of America which lies at the center of the investigation over salmonella-tainted peanut-butter that’s killed nine people, is like a living cartoon.

Prodding workers to ship knowingly salmonella-tainted products, Stewart Parnell, Peanut Corp. of America owner, said they should be able to “turn the raw peanuts on the floor into money.” When he shipped products off to customers before getting test results, and then the test results indicated contamination, his response was, “Uh Oh.” And as we already know, when lab results started reporting contamination, his response was to find a different lab that wouldn’t.

Just give him a wax mustache and a train track and he’s set to go!
