Ruiz Foods resumed full production at its Dinuba factory Tuesday, nearly a week after it suspended operations to take care of a pest problem.
The company worked with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to address the government’s discovery of beetles, roaches and other insects in or around the Dinuba factory.
Company officials said Ruiz Foods is beefing up its pest-control efforts around its 300,000-square-foot factory to prevent insects from entering the frozen-food factory.
The closure was not the result of any food-borne or product-contamination issues.
“We are dedicated to our values of safety, quality and customer service ... values that have been the cornerstone of Ruiz Foods since it was co-founded in 1964,” said Rachel P. Cullen, president and chief executive officer of Ruiz Food Products Inc.
