  196.080.  Permits governing manufacture, processing or packing of certain foods — suspension and reinstatement. — 1.  Whenever the department of health and senior services finds after investigation that the distribution in Missouri of any class of food may, by reason of contamination with microorganisms during manufacture, processing, or packing thereof in any locality, be injurious to health, and that such injurious nature cannot be adequately determined after such articles have entered commerce, it then, and in such case only, shall promulgate regulations providing for the issuance, to manufacturers, processors, or packers of such class of food in such locality, of permits to which shall be attached such conditions governing the manufacture, processing, or packing of such class of food, for such temporary period of time, as may be necessary to protect the public health; and after the effective date of such regulations, and during such temporary period, no person shall introduce or deliver for introduction into commerce any such food manufactured, processed, or packed by any such food manufacturer, processor, or packer unless such manufacturer, processor or packer holds a permit issued by the department of health and senior services as provided by such regulations.

  2.  The department of health and senior services is authorized to suspend immediately upon notice any permit issued under authority of this section if it is found that any of the conditions of the permit have been violated.  The holder of a permit so suspended shall be privileged at any time to apply for the reinstatement of such permit, and the department of health and senior services shall, immediately after prompt hearing and an inspection of the establishment, reinstate such permit if it is found that adequate measures have been taken to comply with and maintain the conditions of the permit, as originally issued, or as amended.

  3.  Any officer or employee duly designated by the department of health and senior services shall have access to any factory or establishment, the operator of which holds a permit from the department of health and senior services for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not the conditions of the permit are being complied with, and denial of access for such inspection shall be ground for suspension of the permit until such access is freely given by the operator.
