L.A. Star Seafood Company to Cease Production of Adulterated Fish

The FDA has urged the California seafood company to stop operations until they demonstrate they can process food in compliance with food safety laws and regulations

A judge has ordered L.A. Star Seafood Company Inc., located in Los Angeles, to halt operations until they demonstrate to the FDA that they can process food in compliance with food safety laws and regulations, according to a news release.

In 2012 the company recalled some of its products due to potential contamination. The FDA then inspected the facility in 2013 and sent the company a warning letter detailing the steps it must take in order to comply with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and Current Good Manufacturing Practice requirements. Another inspection in 2014 documented continued failure by the company to comply with the new law.

“The FDA takes legal action to protect the public’s health when it is necessary,” said Melinda K. Plaisier, the FDA’s associate commissioner for regulatory affairs. “This consent decree represents an agreement between the FDA and L.A. Star to ensure that if and when they reopen for business, they will be producing food that meets food safety requirements.”

The consent decree requires the company to devise and implement Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point plans and Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures, and train staff in both.
