The peanut processing company behind a national salmonella outbreak filed for bankruptcy Friday. Researchers traced the outbreak to the peanut corporation of America's south Georgia plant. The strain has sickened more than 600 people and is linked to nine deaths.
More than 1,900 products have been recalled and pulled from store shelves, leaving many folks wondering what is safe to eat. Local food banks are taking extra precautions.
