With the outbreak of a severe stomach illness that affected 600 people across the nation still remaining a mystery, the FDA said that it found no food safety violation in the Mexican farm that was allegedly said to be the cause of the ailment.
FDA gives nod for resuming farm operations
In light of its findings, the FDA gave the Taylor Farms de Mexico its nod on Tuesday to recommence operations. FDA said its investigators found farm conditions in the area to be ‘in accordance with known food safety protocols’.
The farm had shutdown on its own earlier this month when it came to be known that the salad mix it served at restaurants like the Olive Garden and Red Lobsters had ties with 242 cases of cyclospora infections in Iowa and Nebraska.
The CDC backed the FDA findings when it said that it could not establish a connection between the salad mix served by Taylor Farms and incidents of infection.
