ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Federal Bankruptcy Court Thursday approved a 12 million dollar fund to pay those sickened in the largest Salmonella outbreak nationwide.

The outbreak centered around Peanut Corporation of America's Blakely and Texas peanut processing plants that produced salmonella tainted peanut products that sickened more than 700 people and may have contributed to at least nine deaths nationwide.

Now the more than 250 people who have filed claims must fill out a Salmonella Proof of Claim Form and submit it with the proper identification to the claim administrator in Atlanta. Claims must be filed by the end of October.

Salmonella Proof of Claim Forms must be sent to: Alan M. Maxwell, Claims Administrator, 950 East Paces Ferry Road Suite 3000, Atlanta, GA 30326. You can also call (404)832-9515. To get a form you can email Alan Maxwell at amaxwell@wwhgd.com or from the Bankruptcy Court's website at www.vawb.uscourts.gov.
