Guam - Next time you stop by your favorite mom-and-pop store to pick up a quick snack, you may want to double-check the label. The federal government has filed a civil complaint against a company that sells chicken kelaguen wraps, tatiyas and other products at retail stores around the island.  Tenorio's Home Industry is accused of producing poultry products for distribution in violation of U.S. Department of Agriculture requirements. 

Apparently the violations have been occurring for over a decade and THI and owner Richard Tenorio have sold more than 80 pounds of the non inspected products.  The complaint states that in 2010 Tenorio told USDA officials that he'll continue to sell the products in violation for the survival of his business. Tenorio never responded to numerous opportunities to address the violations. 

The government has asked that Tenorio be ordered to comply with federal regulations.  The company also manufactures and sells Korean dishes, pastry dishes and empanadas.
