Correction - 9/10/12


CORRECTION: A story on disputes at the Walla Walla Valley Farmers Market in Friday’s edition contained an error. The story said Antoinette LaRondelle’s business was turned into the Health Department but no violation was found. In fact, the Walla Walla County Health Department received the complaint Aug. 14 about LaRondelle allegedly preparing food at her home. In the process of investigating, health officials determined she was not using the designated commissary where she had previously said she was storing her food. Based on the finding her permit was suspended. On Aug. 24, the day the Farmers Market was notified of the suspension, LaRondelle established a new site as her commissary. The Health Department required she reapply for the permit. The new permit was approved, and a new owner was listed on it. The notification was sent to the market manager from the Health Department in a letter dated Aug. 31. We regret the error.
