A Chinatown meat distributor in New York has been charged with violating food safety laws and putting consumers at risk of foodborne illnesses.

The US Department of Agriculture filed a complaint Tuesday against Chung Shing Meats which is also known as New Chung Shing Meats. Several present and former owners were also named in the complaint-Wing Hong Cheung, Miao He Feng, Yiu Kwan Cheung and Tian Lung Feng.

“The owners and operators of Chung Shing Meats, Inc., disregarded federal regulations designed to ensure that food on people’s kitchen tables is wholesome and unadulterated,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a statement. ” The defendants repeatedly sold uninspected meat products, in some instances selling uninspected beef bones as ‘Confucius Style Duckling.’  No style of duckling is composed of beef bones, let alone uninspected and potentially tainted beef bones.  The defendants put people at risk.”

According to Carmen Rottenberg of the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, the defendants have agreed to a consent decree which requires them to not sell any uninspected meat or poultry products. They face monetary penalties and additional sanctions if the agreement is violated.
