United States v. Izurieta is an odd opinion. Turns out the Eleventh Circuit was a very good defense attorney in this case.
Two brothers – Yuri and Anneri Izurieta – ran an import/export business. They brought food into the United States from Central America.
They were charged with not following FDA procedures when they brought food into the country that – according to a trial stipulation – contained e coli and salmonella.
