Around a million jars of peanut butter were dumped this week in a landfill in New Mexico to speed up the sale of processing plant. These dumped jars of peanut butter were safe to eat.
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."
