January 4, 2010: FDA Seeks Closure of Quesos MI Pueblito

FDA Seeks Closure of Quesos MI Pueblito, Food Safety Information – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it will ask a federal court to order the closure of a New Jersey cheese manufacturer it says has a history of operating under unsanitary conditions.

The FDA indicated that it will seek action against Quesos Mi Pueblito and two of its officers, Felix Sanchez and Jesus Galvez. According to the agency, recent inspections by the FDA and the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services found Listeria-contaminated cheese and unsanitary conditions at the Passaic company.

If entered by the court, the injunction would stop the company and its officers from manufacturing and distributing food until they can bring their operations into full compliance with FDA food safety regulations and produce cheese that does not test positive for the presence of Listeria. The complaint for permanent injunction was filed in the U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey.

Quesos Mi Pueblito currently manufactures and distributes a variety of soft, semi-soft, and hard Mexican cheeses in grocery stores and supermarkets in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Florida, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Among Quesos Mi Pueblito’s products are queso oaxaca, queso fresco, queso requeson and queso cotija molido.
