LABELLE, Fla. (AP) - Hendry County has completed the investigations regarding possible violations at the facilities of Primate Products and The Mannheimer Foundation.

Based on information gathered and reviewed, Hendry County has found no current violations, so the current investigation cases are considered closed.

The News-Press (https://newspr.es/1EDaiYT) reports that Hendry County Code Enforcement sent notice of investigation letters to Primate Products on March 27 and Mannheimer on April 7. The investigations were initiated as a result of United States Department of Agriculture documents that indicated the subject properties were research facilities for non-human primates with testing and experimentation, in addition to breeding.

As part of the investigation, each facility was required to respond in writing and site inspections were conducted at both properties.
