School Lunch Supplier Repackages Moldy Applesauce

EMSL Analytical, Inc. provides quality food testing services


Federal health regulators are investigating a fruit processor—Snokist Growers of Yakima, WA—believed to have reprocessed moldy apple sauce, reports MSNBC. The company supplies its product to schools through federal nutrition programs and to a baby food maker.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) contends that the method used by Snokist Growers is ineffective at making the food safe for human consumption. However, the company claims that their heating process is “more than adequate to render the product commercially sterile.”
This recent FDA warning came after Snokist failed to address issues discovered during a June inspection in which regulators found fruit products with white, brown, blue, blue-green, and black mold, notes MSNBC.
“EMSL Analytical, Inc., a leading testing laboratory, can help companies and the public detect mold in food,” states Joseph Frasca, Senior VP of Marketing at EMSL. “Even if the mold is invisible to the eye—unlike this case—our precise, sensitive mycological examination can reveal contamination.”
