Entry Description

Richmond – On Saturday morning (7/23) around 9 a.m., Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division Trooper Jeremy Woods stopped a box truck loaded with food for an inspection. During the course of the inspection it was found the company, Ocean Fresh Seafood from Indianapolis, was in violation of a Federal Out of Service Order, and the truck had False and Fictitious Registration.

Woods put the truck out of service leaving it at a Richmond wrecker service with the understanding that Ocean Fresh could come and pick up the food cargo anytime with another truck, to continue onto their delivery destination in Canton Ohio. The refrigeration unit on the truck, which operates on diesel fuel, had a full tank and was operational at that time.

Tonight around 5:20 p.m. Motor Carrier Inspector Tony Alexander was informed by the wrecker service that Ocean Fresh was there loading part of the cargo from the out of service truck into a Ryder Rental Truck. They also advised the refrigeration unit on the original out of service truck had at some point run out of fuel and had been non-operational for some time.

Alexander located the Ryder refrigerated truck east bound on Industries Rd. just west of Chester Blvd. and stopped it for an inspection. The Wayne County Health Department was summoned to the scene and found once frozen seafood at temperatures up to 61 degrees, or 20 degrees above the maximum allowed temperature of 41 degrees. The driver, a Chinese National, was placed out of service for violation of the Federal Law of being a Non English Speaking Driver.

It is unknown where the driver was taking the food; however the GPS unit the driver had was set for Canton Ohio, the original destination for the food. Wayne County Health Department officials estimated over 2.000 pounds of food had to be condemned and destroyed for being transported at temperatures above the 41 degree maximum allowed standard.
