Whole Foods under fire from FDA for ‘serious violations’

Think twice before purchasing pre-made meals and snacks at Whole Foods if you live in the northeastern United States.

The Food and Drug Administration has given the high-end grocery chain until the end of the month to correct “serious violations” at a Massachusetts plant.

The FDA released the letter it sent to Whole Foods—and if you’re at all germaphobic, I suggest that you not read it.

I’ll summarize: The FDA alleged that the Whole Foods plant in question has lax standards when it comes to keeping its food safe from contaminates, including an alarming amount of condensation from pipes gets into the food and employees who don’t do a great job of keeping themselves or their utensils sanitary.

That means the chain’s consumers should steer clear of the quinoa cakes.

After contacting the plant in February about violations, Whole Foods apparently didn’t make enough changes. The letter states:

FDA has serious concerns that our investigators found your firm operating under these conditions. Further, your response includes retraining of employees as a corrective action for most of the observed violations but you failed to mention adequate supervision over your specialized food processing operations and how retraining will ensure sustained compliance. We do not consider your response acceptable because you failed to provide documentation for our review, which demonstrates that all your noted corrective actions have been effectively implemented.

In a statement provided to The Wall Street Journal, Whole Foods’ executive vice president of operations, Ken Meyer, said:

We’ve been in close contact with the FDA, opened our doors to inspectors regularly since February and worked with them to address every issue brought to our attention.
