Madison chef ordered to stop restaurant pork sales

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Food safety officials are looking into allegations a Madison restaurateur may have illegally sold meat to other Wisconsin restaurants.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection sent a letter dated Nov. 11 to chef Dan Fox ordering his Fox Heritage Farms to stop selling "misbranded multiple ingredient meat products, specifically pork."

The letter also says Fox doesn't have the appropriate license to sell meat.

Fox declined to comment on the matter. He runs Heritage Tavern in Madison.

DATCP food safety administrator Steve Ingham declined to discuss the investigation.

But an environmental health services supervisor for Public Health Madison and Dane County, Beth Cleary, says she previously investigated complaints that Fox fed pigs table scraps containing animal products -- a violation of state law.
