  • On July 22, 2019 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it had suspended the food facility registration of Topway Enterprises, Inc, doing business as Kazy’s Gourmet of Houston, Texas.

  • The suspension follows inspections conducted by the FDA and the Texas Department of State Health Services earlier this year, where sanitation issues were noted, including the presence of listeria

  • FDA issued a safety alert on July 18, advising restaurants and retailers to stop selling to Topway and to discard recent shipments of Topway’s seafood products.

  • This is the sixth time the FDA has suspended a facility’s registration since getting the authority to do so from the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act in 2011.

  • FDA is working with the company to address violations. It notes that after a corrective plan has been established and implemented, the FDA will consider allowing the company to resume operations.
