Hawaii health department reopens food plant

HONOLULU (AP) - A food manufacturing plant state health officials closed earlier this year has been reopened.

The Hawaii State Department of Health said in a news release Friday that all products manufactured by First Commercial Kitchen after May 10 are safe to consume.

The health department suspended the kitchen's permit in January after product samples showed evidence of improper manufacturing and the company was unable to provide records proving safe food processing.

A cease and desist order was issued and numerous products recalled.

After training and site improvements, inspectors determined the business is allowed to reopen.

The current recalled products include Barb's Local Style Black Bean Sauce, Barb's Kal-Bi Sauce, Mom's Recipe Sauce and Pacific Poultry Huli-Huli Sauce.

Huli-Huli Sauce with a best by April 2012 date or later is not recalled.
