" 'Survey: peanut recall known but misunderstood'
The Associated Press (February 13, 2009)
"I'll get back to that article. Quite a few people know that salmonella-laced peanut products got sold. If you're reading this post, you probably already know this, but...."
That post has links that will, with a little effort, lead to updated information of the peanut debacle in America's food supply. It's dropped out of the news, a bit, but keeping track of recalled products wouldn't be the worst idea.
About whose fault it is: My take on it is that the boss of a peanut provider, who decided to cut costs by sending out tainted peanuts, is around, or at, the top of the list. Ideally, the FDA would have noticed what's going on, as would have companies closer to consumers. Congress might have realized that food inspectors need to be paid, and allocated funds. But, having enough food inspectors to go around isn't something that gets attention - until something goes wrong.
