A tofu producer in Chicago has stopped the production of all food due to committing several food safety violations.

Fortune Food Product, which produces soy products and bean sprouts, agreed to halt its production this week after a complaint was filed on Sept. 10 in Chicago federal court. Federal inspectors allegedly saw live rodents in the East Pilsen facility as well as other food safety violations. (8 Major Food Recalls You Need to Know About Right Now).

Government inspectors evidently witnessed an employee use mung bean sprouts that had dropped onto the floor. They also saw employees in the facility submerge their arms into tofu water without wearing any protective gloves. Peter Y. Qui, attorney for Steven Seeto, the president and majority owner of Fortune Foods, told the Chicago Tribuneon Wednesday that his clients "are cooperating with the government and that Fortune Food's operations have been shut down for several months."
