Salmonella cases linked to Texas

February 15, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Six salmonella cases in Colorado have been linked to tainted products from a shuttered Texas plant owned by the peanut processing company at the focal point of a national outbreak of the disease.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment linked the cases to the Plainview Peanut Co. in the Texas Panhandle, reported the Oregonian newspaper in Portland, Ore. The victims were between the ages of 2 and 60, and one was hospitalized.

The Plainview plant, owned by Peanut Corp. of America, had operated since 2005 without an inspection, authorities have said.
