C The USDA also filed an administrative action against Miami Best Tropical Enterprise Inc., Miami, for alleged PACA violations.
 
In the action, it is alleged that the company failed to make full payment to nine sellers in the total amount of $299,065.01 for 30 lots of produce, which the company purchased, received, and accepted from October 2008 through July 2009.
 
The company will have an op-portunity to request a hearing. Should USDA find that the company violated the PACA, it could be barred from the produce industry for two years. Furthermore, its principals could not be employed by or affiliated with any PACA licensee for one year and then only with the posting of a USDA-approved surety bond.
