Rice Noodle Company Ordered to Stop Selling for Failure to Comply

Kun Wo Food Products Inc. of San Francisco must comply with food safety regulations.

The U.S. Department of Justice has filed a permanent injunction against Kun Wo Food Products Inc. of San Francisco, Calif., on behalf of the FDA.

FDA inspections found unsanitary conditions that could lead to noodle contamination during visits in 2015 and 2016. Listeria was found in the environment, as well as a number of other contaminants.

"The FDA has an obligation to protect public health, and we will take action when we see a company repeatedly violating food safety regulations," said Melinda K. Plaisier, FDAs associate commissioner for regulatory affairs.

As a result the company was stop processing and distributing food. If Kun Wo wants to resume operations, it must give FDA 90 days' advance notice and fulfill other requirements, including retaining an independent expert to develop a pathogen control program, retaining an independent laboratory to conduct analyses of both the environment and food products, and providing employee training on sanitary food handling techniques.
