SAN FRANCISCO — The Center for Food Safety brought a federal complaint against the U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar for missing mandatory deadlines to designate certain foods as high risk for foodborne illness and to create record-keeping requirements for facilities that handle them.
