DURHAM - U.S. Marshals seized products from a Durham Food distributor this month to prevent the circulation of food from a rodent-infested facility, according to a federal news release.

At the request of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Marshals seized all FDA regulated food susceptible to rodent and pest contamination or other filth held at the Hoover Road warehouse of CFSD Inc, which does business as Chan’s Food Service.

The products were seized earlier this month after an FDA inspection from July 5 to Aug. 3 found evidence of an active and widespread rodent infestation, the release states.

“FDA investigator observed rodent nesting sites, numerous rodent excreta pellets on and around food products, rodent gnawed containers of food, as well as one live and eight dead rodents in the vicinity of food storage,” the release states.
