A permanent injunction has been obtained today by the United States against Triple A Services Inc., a Chicago-based food processing firm, and three company executives. The US filed a lawsuit against the company alleging that Triple A’s ready-to-eat sandwiches and produce are not being prepared in compliance with federal regulations. The lawsuit names executives Thomas J. Whennen, chief executive officer; Scott C. Whennen, president; and David A. Frisco, general manager.

The lawsuit was brought on behalf of the Food and Drug Administration when investigators found evidence of violations from July 6 to August 24, 2011. The violations included finding the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in the facility, which can cause listeriosis, a serious and sometimes fatal disease.

“The violations FDA uncovered in this case posed health and safety risks to consumers,” said Assistant Attorney General West. “Companies that process the food we eat must comply with the rules that keep us safe or face being shut down.”

Tony West, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division and Patrick J. Fitzgerald, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, announced the lawsuit and injunction today, 7thSpace.com reported.

Triple A Services Inc will have to obtain FDA approval before resuming food processing operations.
