Further investigation into Rancho Recall

The U.S. Attorney Office has launched an investigation into the Rancho Feeding recall and shutdown.

While there is no outbreak or illness involved in the Rancho recall and shutdown, there is an ongoing federal investigation involving the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Office of the Inspector General and the U.S. Attorney Office that has most sources of government information on the case refusing to comment.

Marin Sun Farms told local media outlets it has purchased Rancho Feeding.  In addition, Marin Sun Farms submitted an application to USDA's Food Safety & Inspection Service to operate a new federal establishment at the current Rancho Feeding location. 

As result of the ongoing investigation from the U.S. Attorney Office, which normally involves criminal allegation, Marin Sun Farms and Rancho Feeding declined to elaborate on the acquisition or to provide any further details.
