Peanut Corp. of America: Where were federal inspectors?
According to news reports, the last visit made by federal food safety inspectors to the Peanut Corporation of America was in 2001. We should not just be investigating PCA but the USDA as well. Both failed to do their jobs properly. Personally, I think every food manufacturer/packager in America should have to pay to have USDA inspectors at its site every day that it is in production. You want to produce and package food? Ok fine, you are required to have USDA inspectors and you, the company has to pay for it.
