Peanut whistleblower warned of rodent infestation
ABC’s Dan Harris talked to a manager who is blowing the whistle on contamination at a peanut factory in Plainview, Texas. Kenneth Kendrick told ABC that he became aware of rodent infestation while he was working at Peanut Corporation of American. Kendrick brought his concerns to the attention to Peanut Corp. President Stewart G. Parnell but the problems weren’t addressed.
“The owner didn’t give us the money to do what we needed to do,” said Kendrick. “The concern for Mr. Parnell was the money issues.”
