WASHINGTON — The Food and Drug Administration has filed a complaint for a permanent injunction against Captain’s Select Seafood, Inc. and two of its top officers.

The complaint alleges violations of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. In addition, the F.D.A. said the company has violated the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point regulations.

"We simply can’t allow a company to put the public’s health at risk by not having adequate procedures and plans to produce safe food," said Margaret O’K. Glavin, associate commissioner for regulatory affairs. "Our warning letters should not be taken lightly. We will take action against companies and against their executives who violate the law and endanger public health."

The F.D.A. said HACCP violations are a risk because without controls products made by the company could have pathogenic bacteria. The recent action follows a February 2006 warning letter and other violations going back to April 2004. Captain’s Select Seafood is based in Minneapolis and makes various fish and fishery products.
