FDA investigating large Maine lobster processor

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - One of Maine's major lobster processors says it has addressed a battery of violations brought forth by the Food and Drug Administration.

The FDA said it has not yet cleared Rockland-based Linda Bean of violations. The FDA in February sent a letter citing the firm for "significant violations" in the way it processed seafood. Company owner and namesake Linda Bean said she has "addressed everything" and the FDA's letter of violations was "reasonable."

Bean said the company also improved its record keeping to show the FDA that safe cooking and cooling temperature levels are being met.

An FDA spokeswoman declined to comment on whether the FDA believes Linda Bean's corrections are adequate. She said the agency's review of the corrections is part of the investigation.
