August 17, 2012 $2.1 Million Judgment
The Wright guys win again – this time for a grieving widow and her three children. They lost their husband and father on August 21, 2010 when he died of food poisoning caused by peanut butter contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes – a virulent bacterium known to kill 20 to 30 percent of those it infects.
The court ruled that the San Antonio peanut butter manufacturer should have known the peanut butter was contaminated. Samples of the peanut butter were examined by the Texas Department of Health Services in October 2010 and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Both agencies found the company was manufacturing food "under conditions that posed an immediate and serious threat to human life." The agencies asked the owner to shut the plant down but he refused.
