Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Food and Drug Administration has issued an order prohibiting a woman from importing or offering for import into the United States any article of food for 30 years, effective Jan. 13. FDA is basing this order on a finding that the woman was convicted of six felony counts related to the smuggling of adulterated dairy products into the U.S. Specifically, FDA states, the woman (a) failed to disclose the location of, and then distributed, shipments of dairy products after learning that FDA had slated specific shipments for examination due to concerns of adulteration, (b) failed to redeliver for destruction and exportation shipments of dairy products that FDA had determined to be adulterated, and (c) distributed dairy products that were adulterated and not authorized for entry.
