Peanut butter plant can resume limited operations

Posted: Updated:

PORTALES, N.M. (AP) - A bankruptcy judge's order allows an eastern New Mexico peanut butter plant involved in a nationwide salmonella outbreak last year to resume limited operations.

Sunland Inc. in Portales closed its doors and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in October.

According to the Portales News-Tribune the judge's order authorizes the bankruptcy trustee to hire workers to deliver customer inventory but not to process peanuts of peanut products.

Under the order, Sunland Inc. could be open at least the next 12 months, pending the sale of assets.
