The sentencing of the Parnell’s is only a week away and “PB & Jail” will air the coming Wednesday. Below is the introduction and the trailer:
For the third installment of ZPZ’s Original Series Food Crimes we’ve set our sights on perhaps the most significant federal case involving foodborne-illness deaths in history. At the center is a Stewart Parnell, the convicted CEO of Peanut Corporation of America, who knowingly allowed salmonella-tainted peanuts to enter the market, resulting in the deaths of nine people, the hospitalization of hundreds more and as much as one billion dollars in economic fallout. The feds have asked that he receive life in prison. The full video premieres Wednesday, Sept. 16; Parnell receives sentencing in Georgia on Monday, Sept. 21.
