US asks 2010 salmonella victims to describe impact

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Prosecutors are asking the victims of a 2010 salmonella outbreak to share their stories as a judge considers how to punish the corporation and executives responsible.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Iowa asked anyone who was sickened by eggs produced by Quality Egg, LLC to come forward.

Victims have the right to submit statements to the court describing what they had to endure after being sickened.

Quality Egg owner Austin "Jack" DeCoster and his son, Peter, have pleaded guilty to distributing adulterated eggs in interstate commerce. Quality Egg pleaded guilty to the same charge, as well as bribery and introducing misbranded food.

The DeCosters and the company are awaiting sentencing, which hasn't been scheduled. They face up to one year in jail, plus fines and restitution.
