Sunland peanut plant to be auctioned next week
Question of the Day
PORTALES, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico peanut-butter processing plant that went bankrupt after a salmonella outbreak shuttered its operations and prompted a nationwide recall last year is headed to the auction block.
The reserve price for all bidders in Thursday’s auction is $18.5 million. That’s the amount California-based Ready Roast Nut Co. already has offered to buy the defunct Sunland Inc. plant.
The sale seemed imminent when a bankruptcy trustee backed Ready Roast’s offer. But the Clovis News Journal reports another potential buyer has emerged.
A U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge has scheduled a hearing Friday to accept or reject the best bid in the auction.
Sunland attorneys had valued the company’s total assets at $50 million when it sought bankruptcy protection last fall. It owes its three major secured creditors about $14 million.
