Violations of food processing laws included using wooden storage trays that couldn’t be properly sanitized, mildew in a walk-in cooler, jar leads stored in open containers that could be easily contaminated, and deviations from proper canning processes that can cause illness.

WSDA began to inspect the facility on September 12, 2013, but were “unable to complete their inspection due to interference by company management,” according to the press release. That is a violation of state regulations; all food processors are required to permit inspections of their facilities at any time. The company’s license may be re-instated if changes are made.
