The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued warnings to two dairies, a cattle operation and a seafood processor in its latest round of posted warning letters.

Glenville Farms, a dairy in Pennsylvania, was cited for illegal drug residues in a cow sold for slaughter. Tissue samples from the cow revealed the presence of desfuroylceftiofur in kidney tissue at levels more than twice as high as the legal limit.

The farm was also cited for failing to segregate animals treated with drugs from the rest of the herd.

Wabash Way Holsteins LLC, a dairy in Ohio, received a warning letter for having excessive levels of the same drug in two of its cows. FDA stated that the dairy also failed to maintain complete treatment records for its herd.

In Texas, Lynn Born received a letter for having excessive levels of two drugs in cattle, including penicillin. Born also failed to maintain complete treatment records, according to FDA.

Finally, seafood processor BEK Catering, LLC of Alabama was found to have “serious violations” of the seafood Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) regulation. FDA asked the company to have a HACCP plan that lists the critical limits for cooking each of its products.

Some of the company’s control points for cooking various seafood products were also found to be inadequate, according to the FDA.

Each company was given 15 days to respond to the concerns raised by FDA in the warning letters.
