These products are being recalled because they have the potential to be
contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious
and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and
others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer
only short term symptoms such as high fever, sever headache, stiffness,
abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection in severe cases can cause
miscarriages and still births among pregnant women. Consumers experiencing any
of these symptoms should seek immediate medical attention.
The recalled "SOY DELI" and "QUONG HOP" brand products are distributed in the
Midwest and West coast throughout supermarkets and natural food stores.
The date code can be found on the front panel of all the aforementioned
products printed in blue ink.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The potential for contamination was noted after a routine test by Washington
State Department of Agriculture's Food Safety Program revealed the presence of
Listeria monocytogenes in a 12 OZ vacuum pack package of "SOY DELI FIRM
ORGANIC NIGARI TOFU". The company is voluntarily recalling all products
produced during the same time period as the sampled product to ensure customer
Consumers who have purchased the recalled products are urged to return them to
the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact
