Everyone who buys tofu in the USA needs to read this article.

Normally, I'd put this in the "in the news" subforum, but I figure this is the busiest section of VB, and this is important enough that everyone should see it.



Quote:

Quong Hop & Co. of South San Francisco, Calif., is for the second time expanding its recall of tofu products, this time to include a new item and ones that have shelf-life dates until late November and late January.



The products might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria is a microorganism that can cause serious or fatal infections in children, the elderly or those with weakened immune systems. No illnesses have been reported in connection with any of the recalled products, Quong Hop said.



The company recalled Saturday:



The 30-ounce Soy Deli Vacuum Pack Firm Nigari tofu with the code dates Sept. 23, 2007, through Nov. 28, 2007. The product's original recall had the code date Sept. 23, 2007.



The 12-ounce Soy Deli Vacuum Pack Firm Nigari tofu coded Sept. 23, 2007, through Jan. 28, 2008. The product's original recall had the code date Sept. 23, 2007.



All Soy Deli Bulk Vacuum Pack Tofu, both the 10-pound and 25-pound products, with codes dates through Nov. 28, 2007.



The new recall also includes all varieties and sizes of the Soy Deli tofu coded Dec. 27, 2007, and the 16-ounce Quong Hop tofu, water packed, with the code date Sept. 23, 2007, which were announced in the original recall on Sept. 18.



The next day, the company expanded its recall to include products with two additional date codes that now fall within the recall products announced Saturday.



The products were distributed throughout the Midwest and the West Coast in supermarkets and natural food stores, the company said.



Healthy adults who are infected with listeria can experience symptoms including high fever, severe headache, nausea and diarrhea. For more information, consumers can call the company at 650-553-9900.
