SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Federal marshals have seized products at a Shelbyville cheese company that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says is rodent infested.
An FDA e-mail statement Thursday said marshals seized about $200,000 worth of food products from Bedford Cheese Store Inc.
Telephone calls to the company's listed telephone number Thursday were not answered.
The FDA said inspectors found rodent feces, rodent hair, rodent nesting material and building defects that could allow rodents to enter food storage areas.
Products seized include cheese, frozen foods, pastas, salad dressings, prepared salads and soups.
The FDA statement says Bedford Cheese in a written response to the inspection committed to clean up its facility but failed to complete all corrective actions.
