Question

Read the article below WASHINGTON, Feb 11, 2009-Summoned by congressional subpoena, the owner of Peanut Corp. of

America repeatedly invoked his right not to incriminate himself at the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee hearing on the salmonella outbreak that has sickened some 600 people, may be linked to nine deaths — the latest reported in Ohio on Wednesday — and resulted in one of the largest product recalls of more than 1,900 items. The House panel released e-mails obtained by its investigators showing Parnell ordered products identified with salmonella to be shipped and quoting his complaints that tests discovering the contaminated food were "costing us huge $$$$$." Last year, when a final lab test found salmonella, Parnell expressed concern about the cost and delays in moving his products. "We need to discuss this," he wrote in an Oct. 6 e-mail to Sammy Lightsey, his plant manager. "The time lapse, beside the cost is costing us huge $$$$$ and causing obviously a huge lapse in time from the time we pick up peanuts until the time we can invoice." The company's internal records show it "was more concerned with its bottom line than the safety of its customers," said committee Chairman Henry Waxman, D-Calif. Which prescriptive approach best represents Parnell's decision to ship the peanuts even though a final lab test found salmonella?

a. Virtue

b. Deontological

c. Universal Law

d. Utilitarianism

e. b & c
