California Business has PACA Sanctions Lifted by USDA

Los Angeles Producer D. DeFranco & Sons Fulfills Repayment Order, Continues Operations in the Produce Industry under PACA Act

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced that Parimar Inc., operating as D. DeFranco & Sons, has fulfilled a $31,200 reparation order under the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA) for unpaid produce transactions. This allows the Los Angeles-based company to continue operating in the produce industry.

The Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA) serves as a platform for resolving disputes related to produce transactions, often issuing reparation orders to enforce payment obligations in the buying and selling of fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. Failure to comply with these orders can lead to license suspension or sanctions for unlicensed businesses, as well as restrictions on individuals connected to the business at the time the order is issued. These individuals may not work for or be involved with any PACA licensee without USDA approval.

After a reparation order is fully satisfied and all outstanding payments are made, USDA will remove any restrictions on the individuals associated with the business. For more information, contact Penny Robinson-Landrigan, Chief of the Dispute Resolution Branch, at (202) 720-2890 or Please direct all media inquiries to Public Affairs at or (202) 720-8998.
