FDA Seeks Injunction Against Juice Producer For Neglect Of Safety Measures

October 7, 2010: 04:34 PM EST

The U.S. Department of Justice, acting on behalf of the FDA, has filed a complaint in New York requesting a permanent injunction against Brooklyn juice company Juices Incorporated barring it from further processing and distribution of juice products because of violations of federal food safety laws. FDA investigators found that the company failed to adequately heat and refrigerate low-acid vegetable juices to destroy dangerous microorganisms. The company also allegedly failed to properly clean food-contact surfaces or maintain plumbing properly to avoid food and water contamination. The company was also charged with failing to have a Hazard Analysis plan for its carrot and beet juice products. Neglect of safety precautions for beet and carrot juices can lead to formation of that botulism bacteria that produces  a dangerous neurotoxin.
