Off to do a ConAgra Pot Pie Inspection

My friend Jerry’s quasi-news site – newsinferno.com – posted today some old news – "ConAgra Banquet Pot Pie Recall Plant to Undergo 90-Day Verification Period, USDA Says"

"Federal inspectors will be keeping an eye on the ConAgra plant that produced Salmonella tainted Banquet Pot [and others] Pies for at least the next three months. The Missouri plant, which reopened last week, had closed in October after the Banquet pot [and others] pies that were made there where implicated in a 35-state Salmonella outbreak [at least 272 ill]. The Salmonella outbreak forced ConAgra to recall the Banquet and store brand pot pies made at the Missouri plant."

We represent nearly 40 stool-culture positive victims and have secured a Court order to inspect the ConAgra plant the first week in December.  It will be an interesting tour.
