TIFT CO., GA (WALB) - Peanut farmers are ready to put a deadly salmonella outbreak behind them.
Friday, people blamed for the outbreak were convicted almost six years after tainted peanut products killed at least 9 people and made hundreds more sick.
The outbreak led to stricter food safety regulations, and more may be on the way.
Peanut industry leaders say their products are safer than ever.
September means one thing for Georgia peanut farmers, it's harvest time.
