Roy UT Lawyers
The city of Roy is located in Weber County, in the state of Utah. It has a population of 35,000. Roy was first settled in 1873 and formally incorporated in 1937. Roy was named after Roy C. Peebles, the child of a local schoolteacher who had passed away at the end of the 1800’s.
Until the 1940’s, businesses in Roy were limited and consisted only of a gas station, a few stores, and a lumber yard. During World War II, Roy began to develop rapidly as it housed many workers from nearby military bases. Growth continued in the 50’s when the first bank branch in Utah opened in Roy, making way for other banks to set up shop. Currently Roy is home to all types of businesses and industries, being designated recently as Weber County’s fastest growing city. Roy also boasts a museum built during the 1990’s to commemorate the city’s past.
In recent legal news in the city of Roy, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall of several products manufactured by Clarcon Labs based in Roy. In June 2009, various anti-bacterial skin lotions and soap-type products were recalled because they were found to cause tissue infections. Ironically, the anti-bacterial products were found to be contaminated with bacteria. Following the recall, U.S. Federal Marshals conducted a raid of Clarcon Labs in August of 2009, confiscating the remaining products. Inspections revealed that the company had failed to abide by FDA manufacturing regulations, which in turn resulted in the contamination of the products. The FDA and other health agencies have requested that consumers continue to report related incidents to the relevant authorities.
