By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Bankruptcy proceedings for the south Georgia company linked to the nations largest salmonella outbreak began Thursday in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Ron Simon, an attorney for salmonella victims, raised questions about a leaky roof at the Peanut Corporation of America's Blakely plant.

More than 600 were sickened nationwide. Company President Stewart Parnell's daughter Grey Adams confirmed the plant did have a leak, but said the roof was fixed in August. Court documents list more than 475 businesses with claims against the company.

The company said Thursday they have one million dollars in insurance to cover recalls.
