'Serious violations'

Here's a recent warning letter the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued to Virgil Umphenour, owner of Interior Alaska Fish Processors Inc. and a former state Board of Fisheries member.

The agency says it conducted an inspection of Umphenour's Fairbanks fish processing plant and found "serious violations" of food sanitation regs.

A state Web site says the plant produces canned salmon, salmon caviar, salmon corndogs, salmon ikura, salmon sausage and smoked salmon, and markets goods under the brand name Santa's Smokehouse.
