Madison chef ordered to stop restaurant pork sales



MADISON (WKOW) -- Food safety officials are investigating whether a Madison chef illegally sold meat to other Wisconsin restaurants.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection sent a letter dated November 11 to chef Dan Fox ordering his Fox Heritage Farms to stop selling "misbranded multiple ingredient meat products, specifically pork." The letter also says Fox doesn't have the appropriate license to sell meat.

Fox, who runs Heritage Tavern in Madison, declined to comment on the matter.

DATCP food safety administrator Steve Ingham declined to discuss the investigation.

But an environmental health services supervisor for Public Health Madison and Dane County, Beth Cleary, says she previously investigated complaints that Fox fed pigs table scraps containing animal products, which is a violation of state law.
