Tofu should be made fun of, as Justin Timberlake did on Saturday (Night Live).
But not when tofu has the potential to make people barf.
The Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) has revoked the food processing license of Chu Minh Corp., which produces tofu and other soy products, after several inspections found on-going sanitation problems with the Seattle business.
In addition to revoking the company’s license to process food, WSDA also assessed a civil penalty of $17,800 against the company and required all product at the facility to be destroyed.
Notices about the license revocation have been sent to all retail outlets and restaurants that have purchased or carry Chu Minh products.
As a result of these actions, the company cannot process any food at this location. Chu Minh has 10 days to appeal and request agency reconsideration of the order, but it cannot operate as a food processing operation during that appeal period.
