USA – FDA warnings: Tacoma fish factory, St. Paul bakery cited – Listeria monocytogene

Food Safety News

Listeria monocytogenes growing on equipment and other surfaces in a Tacoma, WA, fish processing plant and filthy conditions with evidence of insect infestations in a St. Paul, MN, bakery earned business owners warning letters from the Food and Drug Administration recently.

In the most recent batch of warning letters made public by the FDA, federal officials gave the owners of the fish plant and bakery the standard 15 business days to respond with descriptions of corrective actions.

“Please include the timeframe in which the corrections will be completed and provide documentation that will effectively assist us in evaluating whether the corrections have been made and their adequacy,” according to the warning letters. “If you are unable to complete the corrective actions within 15 working days, identify the reason for the delay and the time within which you will complete the corrections.”
