OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A 38-year-old Clearwater man faces federal charges after prosecutors say he sold hundreds of pounds of beef and venison that had not been USDA inspected.
A release from the U.S. attorney's office in Omaha says Cory Allemang was indicted Thursday on three counts of falsely claiming his products had been inspected and passed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Prosecutors say that between November 2011 and February 2012, Allemang sold about 300 pounds of sausages and 400 pounds of beef jerky, as well as various deer meat products, that he falsely claimed had been USDA inspected.
Allemang faces up to seven years in federal prison if convicted of all the counts.
Attempts to reach Allemang on Friday for comment were unsuccessful.
