Trevor is required by law to perform internal tests on food produced at his plant to check for contamination. During one three month period, three tests of food products containing peanut butter were positive for salmonella contamination. Trevor was not required to report the results to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials, however, he did not. Instead Trevor instructed his employees to simply repeat the tests until the results were negative. Meanwhile, the products that had originally tested positive for salmonella were shipped out to retailers Five people who ate Trevor’s baked goods that year became seriously ill, and one person died from a salmonella infection. Even though Trevor’s conduct was technically legal, was it unethical for him to sell goods that had once tested positive for salmonella? Why or why not?
