FDA Issues Correction on Green Hope Consent Decree

FDA-logoTwo days after releasing a statement about a consent decree of permanent injunction against Green Hope LLC (dab Rosewood Products), the FDA issued a correction. It states “FDA has determined that Rosewood Products is operating in compliance with the Act and FDA food safety regulations, and on January 28, 2013, FDA notified Rosewood that it could continue receiving, processing, manufacturing, preparing, packing, holding, or distributing food at its facilities.”

Green Day was not required to shut down operations. The letter sent to owner Gary G. Ye from the FDA confirmed that the manufacturer of organic tofu and soy milk was complying with provisions of the decree and all FDA regulations.

The facility is going to be under surveillance and could be shut down if the company violates food safety regulations again. The consent decree gives the FDA the right to inspect the facility or any of Green Hope’s operations without prior notice.

FDA inspectors found violations of food safety rules and laws at the facility involving insanitary conditions, including employees handling ready-to-eat foods with their bare hands and using their mouths to siphon liquid from tofu after coagulation.
