The US Department of Justice has filed an injunction against Brooklyn-based juice firm Juices Incorporated for violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

The injunction, requested by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), prevents the firm from processing and distributing juice products, the FDA said today (8 October).

Among the violations observed by FDA investigators were failures to adequately heat and refrigerate low-acid vegetable juices to destroy or prevent growth of dangerous microorganisms; failure to properly clean food-contact surfaces; and failure to maintain plumbing in a manner that avoids a source of possible food and water contamination.

The complaint also charges Juices Incorporated with failing to conform to current good manufacturing practice (GMP) requirements for making, packing, or holding human food.

Various violations involved the following brands: Double Trouble Carrot Punch, Carrot Juice Drink, Carrot & Ginger Drink, Beet Carrot Juice Drink, Agony Peanut Punch, Cashew Punch, and Irish Sea Moss.
