State health officials warned people today not to eat tofu products from a South San Francisco company because the food may be tainted with a dangerous bacteria.
The company, Quong Hop and Co. , has recalled all varieties of its Soy Deli brand tofu with a date code of Dec. 17, 2007, and three other brands: 16-ounce Quong Hop brand Water Pack Tofu with a date code of Sep. 23, 2007; 12-ounce Soy Deli brand Water Pack Tofu with a date code of Sep. 23, 2007, or Oct. 9, 2007; and 30-ounce Soy Deli brand Nigari Tofu dated either Sep. 23, 2007, or Oct. 17, 2007.
The date code can be found on the front panel of all the products. It is printed in blue ink.
The products were distributed to supermarkets and natural food stores on the West Coast and throughout the Midwest, the state Department of Public Health said. Pregnant women and young children in particular should be careful not to eat them, the agency said.
