The Illinois meals firm warned of import violations
As part of its enforcement efforts, the Food and Drug Administration sends warning letters to companies for which it is responsible. Some letters are not made publicly available until weeks or months after they have been sent. Business owners have 15 days to respond to FDA warning letters. Warning letters are often not issued until a company has been given months to years to correct problems. The FDA often edits portions of warning letters that are published for public viewing.
