Contaminated chile

The Food and Drug Administration ordered the seizure of chile products from a warehouse in Derry, N.M.

U.S. Marshals confiscated the chile from Duran and Sons. (I’ve got a call in to the FDA to find out how much was seized, and how this chile is usually distributed.) According to the complaint filed by the FDA, inspectors discovered:

• “Widespread insect and rodent infestation”

• Rodent excreta pellets on and around the food

• Stains that looked like rodent urine

• “Investigators observed and photographed rodent nesting material on finished product.”

• Cats and birds

• Insects, larvae and moths

According to this 2007 High Country News article, Duran and Sons grows 140 acres of chile and processes 600,000 pounds every year.

There was no answer yesterday or today when the Alibi called the chile company. Owner Carl Duran told the Associated Press that he’d been cooperating with the FDA, and the raid was a surprise. He also said the seized chile was slated for destruction anyway.
