Two Fountains on ConAgra Campus, Omaha, NE
These fountains are on the sprawling ConAgra campus in the area along the Missouri River in Omaha, Nebraska which use to be called "Jobbers Canyon," a collection of historic brick buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. These buildings were raised to build this campus for ConAgra. This is a processed food company which has a history of producing tainted food. In July 2002 they produced and then recalled 19 million pounds of tainted ground beef, the third largest recall in history. In February 2007 they recalled Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter tainted with salmonella which was distributed to 47 states. And in October 2007 ConAgra pulled Banquet brand turkey pot pies from stores across the nation as a result of one-hundred fifty two known cases of salmonella poisoning. The fountains are pretty to look at, but I would recommend against tasting them.
