Sysco issued the following statement 18 July regarding its commitment to food safety.
Bill DeLaney, Sysco’s president and chief executive officer, said “Food safety is Sysco’s No. 1 priority, and it cannot be compromised.
"We sincerely regret that some of our California companies failed to adhere to our long-standing policies related to drop sites. The California Department of Public Health and the county district attorneys received our full cooperation in their investigations of our practices. In addition to the settlement with the state, we have comprehensively addressed our food safety and quality assurance practices in California and across the Sysco enterprise by putting in place the following positive steps:
“First, as we stated in September 2013, we eliminated the use of drop sites across Sysco.
"Second, we have introduced mandatory, annual food safety training for all employees across Sysco.
"Third, we are implementing additional and improved food safety reporting, monitoring and compliance controls across our operations to ensure adherence to our policies,” says Mr DeLaney
