News Wed Dec 16 2009
Inspectors from the Illinois Department of Agriculture made an unannounced visit to Frontera Grill today and seized a box of bacon and an eighty-pound headcheese from the restaurant's kitchen, as it hadn't been inspected by state officials. Wisconsin officials had inspected the headcheese, as it came from a supplier to a Milwaukee-area business recently profiled in a Reader cover story for its rogue practices of selling charcuterie outside of government regulations. In a News of the Weird-style maneuver, the inspectors then made their way over to North Pond Cafe, the other restaurant listed in the article as a customer of the illegal charcuterie, to continue their raid; however, North Pond was closed.
P.S.: The Food Chain has been updating the story throughout the day.
