FITCHBURG, WI (WTAQ) - A Madison area company has been ordered to stop selling pork to Wisconsin restaurants.
The Wisconsin State Journal reported today that Fox Heritage Farms of Fitchburg was given a letter from the state agriculture department just over two weeks ago.
It told chef Dan Fox and his business to stop selling, "misbranded multiple ingredient meat products, specifically pork." The report also said Fox did not have the correct license to sell meat.
Ag official Steve Ingham said his agency's investigation dealt mainly with unlicensed meat production.
Fox Heritage Farms reportedly sold meats to restaurants in the Madison and Milwaukee areas.
A Madison and Dane County health official told the State Journal she previously investigated claims that Fox fed table scraps with animal products to pigs, in violation of state law.
Fox would not comment on the state's enforcement action.
