Consent Decree Signed Against Jonlly Fruits

A consent decree was signed on January 17, 2013 against Jonlly Fruits, Inc. prohibiting distribution of their fruit and juice products in the United States. Products manufactured by that facility were recalled last year for undeclared milk allergens.

GavelThe press release states that “defendants have a long history of violating the Federal Food, Drug, and Costmetic Act by failing to comply with current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) and the juice Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HAACP) regulations. Such violations render Jonlly’s fruit and juice beverages adulterated under the Act because they have been prepared, packed, and held under unsanitary conditions.”┬áIn addition, the products were often labeled with false claims, including “light” and “no sugar” without complying with FDA regulations.

All operations have been ceased until the facility complies with the Act and comply with regulations. Melinda K. Plaisier, the FDA’s acting associate commissioner for regulatory affairs, said, “our investigators recently inspected the firm and, along with labeling violations, found mold on a grinder, rust on a bottle-capping machine and rodents in the processing area.” The corporation was sent a warning letter almost two years ago about these issues.
