BROOKLYN - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration wants a Brooklyn food company to clean up or close down, but its owners say their facility is already in top shape.

The FDA has filed an injunction in Brooklyn federal court that says NY Gourmet Salads? facility is contaminated with bacteria and that its food is stored in unsanitary conditions. The complaint seeks to close down the location if the issues aren't addressed.

The company, which makes ready-to-eat deli salads and cream cheeses, says it?s already spent thousands of dollars to comply with several citations the FDA has filed over the past four years.

Owner Leonard Spada says he has an upcoming court date and that he has no intentions to shut down.
