WASHINGTON - Federal health officials opened a criminal investigation yesterday into the Georgia peanut processing plant at the center of the national salmonella outbreak.

The investigation into Peanut Corp. of America follows reports of shoddy sanitation practices and inspections that found the company sold contaminated peanut products to food makers.

Yesterday, two Pennsylvania dairies recalled some ice cream and frozen yogurt flavors because of a possible link to salmonella-tainted peanuts. Some of the products have been distributed to New Hampshire stores.

Turkey Hill recalled Tin Roof Sundae Premium, Chocolate Nutty Moose Tracks Stuff'd, Chocolate Nutty Moose Tracks Light Recipe, Nutty Caramel Caribou Frozen Yogurt, Peanut Brittle No Sugar Added Recipe, and Peanut Butter Mania Light Recipe.

Galliker Dairy is recalling Rocky Road Ice Cream and Sundae Nut Cones.
