Lack of Ethics

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably have heard that there have been 8 deaths, and over 575 illnesses, due to the fact a peanut plant sold tainted products. However, they did not do it by accident, they willing lied to the FDA, and still shipped a bunch of peanut butter that tested positive for salmonella. Most people would ask, isn’t that illegal, well it is, but companies don’t have the routinely release their test results. I’m very disappointed with the corporate ethics of this company.
