Neglect For Customer Safety Backfired Into A Prison Sentence

Blunder Backfire
Your neglect for other people’s needs and passions
backfires onto you as unforeseen blunders

Peanut Corporation of America CEO Stewart Parnell knowingly had his company ship peanut butter that was not safe. He had peanut butter shipped:

Before it was tested for salmonella.

After it was tested for salmonella but before the results came back.

After it had tested positive for salmonella and been retested again.

In the outbreak of salmonella that followed, more than 700 people got sick and 9 people died. Parnell’s blunder backfired onto him as a 28 year sentence in prison.
