(AP) — In this June 6, 2010 file photo, Austin "Jack" DeCoster, right, appears in a Lewiston, Maine, court on animal cruelty charges related to Turner egg farm in Maine.
DeCoster also owns Wright County Egg, an Iowa egg farm linked to a massive salmonella recall in 2010. Dozens of people sickened last year after eating salmonella-tainted eggs from Wright County Egg will receive compensation, including six-figure checks for two children, under the first wave of legal settlements with the disgraced egg magnate blamed for the outbreak, The Associated Press has learned.
