IOWA'S QUALITY EGG OWNERS DECOSTER PLEAD GUILTY
Red River Farm Network reports:

Quality Egg LLC owners Austin and Peter DeCoster pleaded guilty in an Iowa U.S. District Court to misdemeanor charges of introducing adulterated food into interstate commerce stemming from a nationwide salmonella outbreak in 2010.

Quality Egg LLC had earlier pleaded guilty to charges of bribing a USDA inspector, selling misbranded food and introducing adulterated food into interstate commerce.

The company has agreed to pay a $6.8 million fine.

In exchange for the guilty pleas, the DeCosters' will be allowed to file a motion arguing that it would be unconstitutional to sentence either of them to any type of confinement.
