The FDA website indicates that the citations were delivered to the company as follows:
'You did not provide FDA with information on the scheduled process for a new acidified food before packing the food.'
'A scheduled process was not established by a qualified person who has expert knowledge acquired through appropriate training and experience in acidification and processing of acidified foods.'
'You did not exclude pests from your food plant to protect against contamination of food.'
'Your sanitation controls procedures did not ensure cleanliness of food-contact surfaces and prevention of cross-contamination.'
'You did not establish and implement adequate written sanitation controls verification procedures for environmental monitoring.'
The FDA routinely inspects facilities across the nation to determine if the workplaces and their products are compliant with FDA-regulated laws and regulations implemented to improve overall public health. Inspection results are then disclosed publicly for businesses to consistently make smarter business decisions for the future.
The FDA is a government agency that is primarily responsible for monitoring the manufacturing and distribution of human and animal drugs, biological products, medical supplies and tobacco products for safety quality, according to its website.
