Feds Seek Permanent Injunction Against N.Y. Food Processor For Listeria Contamination

August 4, 2010: 11:25 AM EST
Acting at the request of the FDA, the U.S. Justice Department has filed a complaint in federal court seeking a permanent injunction against a New York food company that had been warned repeatedly about processing ready-to-eat deli salads, seafood salads, and cream cheeses under unsanitary conditions. The complaint charges NY Gourmet Salads and its president with violating federal law by selling foods prepared, packed, or held under unsanitary conditions. The FDA inspected the company’s facilities annually from 2006 and found unsanitary conditions and a failure to follow applicable FDA regulations. The company had promised to fix the problems, but a March 2010 inspection found the dangerous bacterium Listeria monocytogenes throughout the defendants' facility and in a finished product sample (chickpea salad).
