Seven food companies received official notices about problems with their products in the latest round of warning letters from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, according to Food Safety News.
The weekly warning letters covered everything from misbranded products, to illegal drug residues in beef, and violations of acidified food regulations.
Four companies were notified to correct issues related to labeling.
Chlodnia Grudziadz, an importer of Polish foods, was told that three of its packaged frozen food products were misbranded in that they failed to declare a major allergen (milk) on the label.
