Peanut Butter Dumped: Why?

Sunland Inc. had dumped around 950,000 jars of peanut butter this week  the Curry County landfill in Clovis, New Mexico. The estimated worth of these jars is around $2.6 million. Surprisingly, all of these jars were safe to eat. What was the reason of this massive dumping of peanut butter jars?

Actually the Costco Wholesale refused to take the shipment of these peanut butter jars. And these jars were produced by that peanut-processing plant of Sunland Inc. which is now bankrupt due to a nationwide recall of 2012 salmonella outbreak. And Sunland Inc. is also said to dumped these jars to speed up the process of sale of the processing plant. 

According to WebProNews, Bankruptcy trustee Clarke Coll said, "Sunland had no other choice after Costco also declined requests to let it be donated to food banks or repackaged or sold to brokers who provide food to institutions, such as prisons."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
