Judge: California Raisin board formed illegally
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The future of the Fresno-based, California Raisin Marketing Board may be in jeopardy after a judge has ruled the organization was not created legally.
A group of growers and packers -- unhappy with marketing fees -- challenged the California Department of Food and Agriculture. They claimed the organization's board did not meet the appropriate requirements when it formed 15 years ago.
The board is responsible for promoting California raisins around the country.
