ConAgra Says Leaky Roof Led to Salmonella in its Peanut Butter

ConAgra Foods said Thursday that moisture from a leaky roof and faulty sprinkler in its Georgia peanut butter plant allowed salmonella bacteria to infect its finished product last August and later sicken more than 400 people nationwide.

ConAgra says it is thoroughly renovating the Sylvester, Georgia facility before reopening it this August.
