Oregon. DOL in 2012 charged blueberry growers Pan-American Berry Growers and B&G Ditech with paying workers less than the minimum wage. DOL threatened to put a hot-goods hold on their blueberries so that they could not be shipped across state lines unless the farms agreed to settle the charges for $210,000 in back wages in fines.
The Fair Labor Standards Act allows DOL to seek a court order to prevent the interstate shipment of goods that were produced in violation of the statute's minimum wage, overtime or child labor provisions.
