Recall Alert: Tofu Brand

Quong Hop & Co., one of the largest tofu makers in California, stopped production last month when inspectors found the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes lurking in the factory and food made there, prompting a recall.
“Everything that was at the facility at the time of the investigation is under embargo,” said Patrick Kennelly of the California Department of Public Health.

This is not the first time Quong Hop has faced a recall due to listeria. Quong Hop in July issued a voluntary recall of more than 90 products it sells under the brand name “Raquel’s,” including hummus, wraps, sandwiches and salads.
