The federal government yesterday sued Yi Soon Bakery, 112 Brighton Ave., on charges it sold 30 pounds of uninspected meat to a Thai market in Lowell after being told repeatedly to knock it off.
The suit, which also names bakery owner Kung Sung, says the Jan. 16 sale violated the Federal Meat Inspection Act, which requires government inspection of any business that is "processing meat or meat products for commerce," and that federal inspectors warned the bakery in January, 2010 and March and October, 2011 to stop selling meat at wholesale.
The suit seeks a permanent injunction to force the bakery to comply with the Federal Meat Inspection Act and to reimburse the government for the costs of the legal action.
