A
seafood distributor (who also operates a retail market in Oriental) is in the news. The United States District Court, Eastern District of North Carolina, provided a press release headlined Seafood Processor Pleads Guilty to Selling Foreign Crabmeat Falsely Labeled as Blue Crab from USA.

Jeff Styron agreed to a plea agreement Thursday, September 3, 2020 before U.S. District Judge James C. Dever III on charges that his company, Garland Fulcher Seafood Company, at his direction, falsely labeled $250,000 of foreign crabmeat as “Product of USA.”

The court press release states this took place from 2014 through 2017. TownDock.net asked Styron to visit TownDock HQ to discuss the matter, and he agreed.

Jeff Styron told TownDock that he did indeed ship improperly labeled crabmeat, and openly admits it was wrong. He states however that this was done not over several years, but over a 6 week period at the end of 2014, into the beginning of 2015.
