Inspectors from district offices of the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently identified serious violations at four seafood processors, an Ohio bakery and a New York dairy farm, among other food companies, for various food-safety issues. Problems at a bakery in Philadelphia called Cho & So Inc.’s Oh Bok Bakery last October included failure to control pests, clean food-contact surfaces, clean equipment and utensils, and clean and sanitize. In addition, there were plumbing and lighting problems and Korean cake was also misbranded.
Gallagher Farms LLC, a dairy farm in Deansboro, N.Y., was also warned about drug residues found in a cow it sold for slaughter as food.
