US scallop company warned by FDA
Charging that American seafood seller M&B Sea Products kept scallops in unsanitary conditions, federal regulators said the company has been issued a warning letter by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The action came after a routine inspection of the Herman Melville Boulevard processing facility in July.
"We inspected your seafood processing facility (and) found that you have serious violations of the seafood Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) regulation," said the letter posted on the FDA's website.
The HACCP is a system designed to protect food products from biological, chemical and physical hazards.
John F. Murray, president of M&B Sea Products, said Wednesday that he hadn't heard about the FDA letter.
