FDA Seeks To Shut Down Cheese Maker

Federal food safety officials want to shut down a cheese producer that sells to grocery stores in NC, Washington DC, and six other states, alleging the company has failed to correct unsanitary conditions and that recent inspections turned up cheeses contaminated with Listeria.

The FDA filed a complaint Monday in U.S. District Court in Newark, New Jersey seeking a permanent injunction to stop production at Quesos Mi Pueblito in Passaic. The company produces various types of cheeses popular in Latin American cuisine.

A phone number listed for the company was disconnected, and there was no lawyer listed for the firm on the federal complaint.

Mi Pueblito sells cheeses in grocery stores and supermarkets in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Florida, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
