Juice Maker Shut Down for 'Grossly Insanitary Conditions'
Jan 19, 2021

The Food and Drug Administration this week announced a settlement with a Washington state juice producer over unsanitary conditions and contaminated products.

The FDA said a federal judge, at its request, entered a consent decree between the agency and Sunnyside, Washington-based Valley Processing Inc. — and its owner and president — to halt the distribution of adulterated juice products.

The FDA previously filed a complaint alleging that Valley’s juice products contained inorganic arsenic and patulin toxins at levels that could pose health risks to consumers.
