Castleberry’s, the company whose products were recalled this summer after confirmed botulism cases were linked to consumption of its products, will resume processing tomorrow after a two-month period when the company was shut down. According to Examiner.com:
The company was green-lighted to reopen the plant last week by both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, said Dave Melbourne, a senior vice president at the company, in a prepared statement.
However, the production line that made the hot dog chili sauce will not placed into operation yet, company officials said.
"The investigation conducted by Castleberry’s and by the regulatory agencies determined that mechanical issues with one processing system were the cause of any contamination," Melbourne said.
Melbourne did not give additional detail about the mechanical issues.
