Two dairies and a seafood processor were notified about alleged food-safety violations in the latest round of warning letters posted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In November 2014, FDA inspected Sunny Boys Dairy in Delta, UT, where they found a new penicillin drug being used in a way not directed by its labeling, the letter stated. The drug was used on a dairy cow without following the recommended dose and route of administration and for treating a condition (mastitis) not identified in the approved product labeling, according to FDA. The drug was also used without the supervision of a licensed veterinarian, which would be another violation. Reeder Farms of Ionia, MI, was inspected from Oct. 7 to 23, 2014. FDA stated that it found the dairy had sold a cow for slaughter whose liver tissues revealed levels of a drug at 10 times the maximum limit. As such, the meat was considered adulterated by agency standards. FDA sent a letter to seafood processor SDP Marketing and Distribution in San Marcos, CA, following an inspection in early December 2014. According to the law, the company violated Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points regulations (HACCP) by not having complete food-safety plans for the production of its Dried Whole Shrimp and Dried Jumbo Shrimp products, the agency stated. Specifically, the food-safety plans do not account for the hazard of undeclared sulfites. The labels say that the products contain added sulfites. In addition, SDP’s facilities do not maintain sanitation monitoring records for the safety of the water that comes into contact with food, materials and surfaces that touch food, according to the agency’s letter. In each letter, FDA requested that the companies provide written responses detailing steps taken to bring the facilities into compliance with food-safety laws and regulations, to correct violations cited in the letters, and to prevent their recurrence. Recipients of these warning letters have 15 working days from receipt to outline specific steps they have taken to come into compliance with the law.
