An Iowa federal jury has found William Aossey, the former owner of Midamar Corp., guilty of making false export statements along with conspiracy and wire fraud stemming from the company’s misrepresentation of the source of food exported to Malaysia and Indonesia. U.S. v. Aossey, No. 14-0116 (N.D. Iowa, jury verdict entered July 13, 2015). Aossey was indicted over claims that Midamar bought products from a slaughterhouse not certified to export meat to Indonesia and Malaysia, then removed the facility’s federal establishment number with nail-polish remover and replaced it with the number of a certified facility. Additional charges alleging that the company’s products do not meet halal standards are pending against Aossey’s sons.
