Tan Tan Tofu Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared All Natural Peanuts in Panda Flavor Soybean Juice
Sam V. Ho, Manager
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Westminster, CA -- December 29, 2006 -- Tan Tam Tofu of Westminster, CA is recalling its 64 FL OZ/1.890 L "All Natural Tan Tan Tofu Panda Flavor Soybean Juice" because it may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The Panda Flavor Soybean Juice in a 64 Fl. Oz/ 1.890 L opaque plastic container with no lot number or expiration date is only distributed in California.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this product.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the peanut-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a typographical error in the ingredient statement on the product label, which lists bean nuts instead of peanuts.
Production of the product has been suspended until FDA and the company is certain that the problem or label has been corrected.
Consumers who have purchased 64 FL OZ/1.890 L "All Natural Tan Tan Tofu Panda Flavor Soybean Juice" are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (714) 895-3565.
