In a settlement announced by the Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR), Best Oriental Produce Inc. of Vernon was penalized $10,000 and agreed to put control measures in place to prevent sales of produce with illegal pesticide residues in California. DPR works closely with the federal Food and Drug Administration, which has jurisdiction over imported produce from other states and countries, and the California Department of Public Health.
