AFTER months of agreeing not to distribute chicken kelaguen to local stores until securing a federal inspection, R. Tenorio’s Home Industry informed the U.S Dept. of Agriculture that he intends to limit himself to non-poultry products or will only sell to retail consumers.

Owner Richard L. Tenorio, according to a status report filed in the District Court of Guam, told investigators from the USDA that he does not desire to pursue his grant of a USDA inspection – which was required of him as a wholesale distributor of poultry products.

R. Tenorio’s Home Industry is a manufacturer and wholesaler of local popular food products sold in several markets. According to a consent judgment and decree filed in October of last year, Tenorio agreed to halt chicken kelaguen sales to stores until he came into compliance with the Poultry Products Inspection Act.

The status report, filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, asks for the consent judgment and degree to remain in effect for a total of one year from its filing, until Oct. 23. Another status hearing is scheduled for April 8.
