FDA sends warning letter to Washington food firm regarding import violations


As part of its enforcement activities, the Food and Drug Administration sends warning letters to entities under its jurisdiction. Some letters are not posted for public view until weeks or months after they are sent. Business owners have 15 days to respond to FDA warning letters. Warning letters often are not issued until a company has been given months to years to correct problems. The FDA frequently redacts parts of warning letters posted for public view.


JD’s Market Inc.
Lynnwood, WA

An import company in Washington is on notice from the FDA for not having FSVPs for a number of imported food products.

In an Oct. 15 warning letter, the FDA described May 3 and May 17-21 remote Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) inspections at JD’s Market Inc. in Lynnwood, WA.

The FDA’s inspection revealed that the firm was not in compliance with FSVP regulations and resulted in the issuance of an FDA Form 483a.

The firm did not develop, maintain, and follow an FSVP for any of the foods they import, including the following foods:

  • Jumbo Raisins imported from (Redacted)
  • Dry Plums imported from (Redacted)
  • After Meal Snacks imported from (Redacted)

The FSVP requires importers to verify that their foreign suppliers of food for human and animal consumption meet applicable FDA safety standards.
