Food standards breached eight times by smallgoods maker in SA

South Australian smallgoods makers Conroys and its two directors are facing a maximum fine of $200,000 following allegations that, within a three month period, they breached the South Australian food safety code a total of eight times.

The company has yet to enter pleas to the eight alleged breaches, a number of which their accreditation is dependent upon under the Primary Produce (Food Safety Schemes) Act (2004). Both the company's two directors, Peter and Patrick Conroy, as well as the company itself have been charged with breaches.

The Deputy Chief Magistrate adjourned the case until next month.

In late 2005, Conroy's smallgoods were removed from shelves following a listeria outbreak in which a man died as a direct result of ingesting infected products from Conroy's smallgoods. Richard Formosa's family finally received compensation for his death in the amount of $200,000 in 2012.
