ConAgra attorneys plan to appeal a 180-million dollar judgment awarded to three men injured in a 2010 explosion in Chester, Illinois.  They acknowledge the incident was tragic but claim they shouldn't be held accountable for the injuries the men suffered.  But a jury ruled against the company, awarding millions to John Jentz, Robert Schmiedt, and Justin Becker.  

The three were seriously injured in the blast and filed suit claiming ConAgra hadn't cleaned the grain elevators in over 20-years and that they didn't take proper action when the middlings started heating up, more than one month before the explosion.
