After concluding an inspection 18 months ago, the FDA now issued a warning letter to a sprout and tofu facility where the officials found living rodents and cockroaches, as well as Listeria bacteria.
The FDA informed Steven Seeto that his company Fortune Food Product Inc. violated two different sets of federal regulations because the company is “mixed-type facility”. It grows sprouts from mung beans, which comes under the produce safety rule, and the production of tofu and soybean noodles falls under the food production facility regulations.
During FDA’s inspection in January 2018 they observed that the employees are scooping sprouts up off the floor and preparing them for sale. This was the violation of the regulations along with the presence of live rodents and cockroaches in the facility and the company admitted of this violation during the inspection.
Inspectors also found out that the equipment were dirty and failed to test sprouts, water and the facility environment. Even the employees violate the food safety laws.
Labelling violations were also observed in the facility. The FDA also warned the company about potential food seizure.
