A federal judge in southwest Georgia has ordered a two-week delay for the trial of three people charged in a deadly outbreak of salmonella five years ago.
Several defense attorneys and a U.S. attorney's spokeswoman, Pam Lightsey, confirmed the decision.
The salmonella outbreak that killed nine people and sickened more than 700 was traced to Peanut Corporation's Georgia plant and prompted one of the largest food recalls in history.
