(410 ILCS 635/12) (from Ch. 56 1/2, par. 2212)
    Sec. 12. Whenever the enforcing agency finds that an imminent hazard to the public health exists which requires immediate action to protect the public health, it may, without any administrative procedure to bond, bring an action for immediate injunctive relief to require that such action be taken as the court may deem necessary to meet the emergency, including the closing of the dairy farm, milk plant, receiving or transfer station, cleaning and sanitizing facility, milk hauler-sampler, milk tank truck, or certified pasteurizer sealer or the suspension or revocation of the permit. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, such order shall be effective immediately. The court may issue an ex parte order and shall schedule a hearing on the matter no later than 3 working days from the date of the injunction. Where this Act is being enforced by the State of Illinois, the State's Attorney of the county in which the violation occurred or the Attorney General shall bring such actions in the name of the People of the State of Illinois. When, in the opinion of the enforcing agency, such conditions are abated, it may authorize reopening the plant, cleaning and sanitizing facility or station, and the injunctive order shall be dissolved.
