Cops and Courts: July 18, 2014: Man found guilty in Scotts Valley robbery – Santa Cruz Sentinel
COSIN PressDemocrat.com July 18, 2014 8:03 AM
Sysco Corp., the country’s largest food distribution company, has agreed to pay nearly $20 million in restitution, costs and penalties to settle a lawsuit accusing it of improperly storing perishable foods, according to the Sonoma County District Attorney’s office.
Ten district attorney’s offices in California, including Sonoma County’s, sued Sysco and its California affiliates in Santa Clara County Superior Court over charges it was holding perishable foods, including seafood, milk and raw meat, illegally in storage sheds that were unregistered or improperly refrigerated.
Sysco’s affiliates deliver food to restaurants, hotels and schools, using a fleet of refrigerated trucks. Last year, according to the District Attorney’s Office, a statewide investigation found Sysco was trucking some items to storage sheds where they were picked up later by employees who then made deliveries using their personal vehicles.
The investigation, conducted by the California Department of Public Health, identified 22 unregistered sites, many of which officials said were unsanitary or poorly refrigerated.
The complaint said such practices violated portions of the state health and safety code and that Sysco made false claims of having state-of-the-art distribution warehouses.
Sysco, which cooperated with the investigation, agreed to pay $15 million in civil penalties and more than $4 million in restitution, including a $1 million contribution to food banks throughout California. The company also agreed on a $3.3 million payment to fund a five-year statewide inspection and enforcement program.

He is due back in court Sept. 17, according to jail records. Santa Cruz FOOD DISTRIBUTOR ORDERED TO PAY NEARLY $20 MILLION IN SETTLEMENT >> > A lawsuit settled with the nation’s largest food distribution company, Sysco Corp., means the firm and its California companies must fork over $19.4 million in restitution, costs and penalties after it kept perishable foods in unrefrigerated and unregistered storage sheds. An NBC television reporter uncovered Sysco’s spoils, and Santa Cruz and Santa Clara County prosecutors led the lawsuit, said Santa Cruz County prosecutor Kelly Walker. It was filed in Santa Clara County. Sysco delivers food to restaurants, hotels and schools, among other businesses, using a fleet of refrigerated food trucks to transport most of its products. “For some small orders, Sysco food trucks would deliver food orders to unrefrigerated sheds for later pick-up by other employees who would then transport the food in their personal unrefrigerated vehicles to commercial customers,” Walker said.
