SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- PG&E President and CEO Bill Johnson is coming under intense criticism, not only for the blackouts, but how he addressed people who can’t afford to replace food that spoiled during the shutoffs. In an exchange with the I-Team on Thursday night, Johnson suggested people with spoiled food visit food banks to replace it. At the final news conference for this round of blackouts, PG&E showed video of downed power lines in several counties and said each of them could have sparked a wildfire, had the company not turned off the power. PG&E also had a warning for homeowners, especially those returning after being evacuated.
