Consent Decree Issued Against Native American Enterprises
The U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas entered a consent decree of permanent injunction last week between the United States and Native American Enterprises of Wichita, Kansas. The action was brought for “significant and ongoing violations of federal food safety laws and regulations.”
The government alleges that the company’s ready to eat refried beans and sauces are adulterated, in that they have been prepared, packed, or held under unsanitary conditions so the food is contaminated with filth or has been rendered injurious to health. The company can no longer sell any FDA regulated products until it comes into compliance with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
