Quick Picks: Whistleblowers and Tainted Peanuts

Quick Picks focuses on a select few of the day's stories from "Breaking on the Web."

  • FDA scientists who earlier this month complained to Obama about "corruption" at the division that approves medical devices are now saying that the managers responsible are playing the oldest trick in the book: pointing the fingers right back at them. The New York Times reports that the agency's "dissidents" have written to Obama to accuse FDA managers of possibly ordering agency investigators to "investigate us rather than the managers who have engaged in wrongdoing!"
  • The Washington Post reports today that the Georgia peanut plant responsible for the recent outbreak has found evidence of salmonella at least 12 times in the last two years, but shipped their products out anyway. Investigators also found three more strains of salmonella at the plant on top of the one that has killed eight people and sickened hundreds.
