WASHINGTON, Dec 13 (Reuters) - A subsidiary of ConAgra Brands Inc was sentenced on Tuesday to pay an $8 million criminal fine and forfeit an additional $3.2 million in assets after pleading guilty to shipping contaminated peanut butter linked to a nationwide outbreak of salmonella poisoning in 2006-2007, the U.S. Justice Department said.

"The sentence represents the largest fine ever paid in a food safety case," the Justice Department said in a statement on the sentence against ConAgra Grocery Products LLC. (Reporting by Mohammad Zargham; Editing by Eric Beech)
