that it has issued the first
(WL) for a violation of the requirements for a Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP). This is a good reminder for importers that they must have a FSVP for each food for which they are the FSVP importer. ...
The first WL concerning the FSVP was issued to Brodt Zenatti Holdings LLC in Jupiter, Florida. The Company imported tahini which, in May 2019, had been implicated in a Salmonella outbreak. After identifying the importer, FDA conducted an FSVP inspection. According to the WL, FDA found that the importer did not develop an FSVP for the imported tahini as required. As with everything imported, the consequences of a violation of the applicable regulations may have serious consequences.
