According to the USDA, its Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) issued the original recall because the company allegedly recorded false laboratory results. Specifically, the company allegedly produced negative laboratory results for Salmonella when the results were actually positive, or reported that sampling had occurred when, in fact, no microbial testing was performed. FSIS requested Nutriom include additional products, but it declined. Because the product was not produced in accordance with FSIS requirements, it is unfit for human consumption.
