FDA tries to halt sale of Chung's egg rolls

Chung's, an egg roll maker whose goods are sold in supermarket freezer cases from coast to coast, should be prevented from selling its shrimp egg rolls because they can make people sick, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

The government is seeking a permanent injunction in U.S. District Court in Houston banning the sale of Chung's shrimp egg rolls after finding listeria in the company's plant and noting the egg rolls are made "under insanitary conditions, whereby they may have become contaminated with filth." The company was officially warned in 2007 about the problems. And a further inspection in 2009 found similar problems, the FDA said.
