The California National Primate Research Center at UC Davis was cited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture of for conditions that a number of animals had been living in.

School officials announced the citation Friday.

The USDA says the center didn’t prevent illness or injury to some rhesus macaque monkeys between 2009 and 2010. Nineteen monkeys died from infections, injuries or “inadequate maternal care.”

The citation reportedly didn’t come with any fines or other punishment. According to school officials, the USDA decided against fines because of the facility’s improvement in quality.

The facility in Davis is one of eight centers in the country funded by the National Institutes of Health. The center researches infectious diseases, among other health issues and disorders.
