Results of an Establishment Inspection Report (EIR) conducted by the Food and Drug Administration find that the food processing facility of Coronet Foods Incorporated tested negative for "objectionable conditions."
The EIR included environmental facility testing on both food contact and non-food contact surfaces as well as product samples of shredded lettuce, diced and sliced globe tomatoes, unprocessed Roma tomatoes and sliced Roma tomatoes. The EIR was conducted by William A. Warnick, an FDA investigator based in the Baltimore District according to PRNewswire.
Warnick "identified no objectionable conditions during the inspection" and stated that "the file jacket contains no record of regulatory action taken against" Coronet Foods since the company was founded in 1966.
In July, it was alleged that sliced Roma tomatoes supplied by Coronet
Foods to a vendor might have contained a food-borne, illness-causing bacteria.
