FDA suing ‘insanitary’ fish processor
The U.S. Department of Justice demanded an injunction Friday on behalf of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) against New York City Fish, Inc. as part of a suit to stop the fish processor from manufacturing and distributing potentially dangerous fish products for consumption.
The suit claims that the company has "a history of processing fishery products under insanitary conditions, with inadequate safety procedures." The injunction would keep the fish processor from distributing its products until it complies with the requirements of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The Act is comprised of a set of laws that regulate the safety of food, drugs, and cosmetics.
The injunction, depending on how long it takes the company to comply, could be devastating to New York City Fish's business.
