ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Peanut farmers are next to feel the pain from Sunland Inc.'s decision to declare bankruptcy.
The New Mexico peanut butter plant, involved in a nationwide salmonella outbreak, declared Chapter 7 Bankruptcy early in October, now has growers in eastern New Mexico and west Texas collectively out millions of dollars.
One grower says he's mostly upset because he fells Sunland wasn't honest.
Court documents show the plant had been preparing for the possibility of bankruptcy months before doing so, yet the growers say the plant didn't warn them so they paid for and planted a crop that they may now have to put in storage.
The crop is ready, but one grower says there are still no buyers.
