Health Inspectors Close Sf Tofu Company Over Sanitation Issues |

Health District Officials: No Measles in Washoe County - KTVN Channel 2 - Reno Tahoe News Weather, Video -

(AP) Wednesday, February 11, 2015 SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Health inspectors have ordered a Bay Area tofu company to shut down until it improves sanitary conditions. The owners of the Fong Kee Tofu Company in San Francisco agreed to cease operations on Tuesday as part of a settlement. A civil lawsuit against Fong Kee claimed that Food and Drug Administration inspectors found health violations last year. Those included pigeons on top of plastic-wrapped raw soybean pallets and insects where tofu was processed. Company owners could not be reached for comment.

The Health District says at this time there are no confirmed measles straight from the source cases in the county. The State Division of Public and Behavioral Health also says the one possible case reported in Elko County tested negative for the disease. Six confirmed cases of measles have been reported in Las Vegas. Measles is a highly contagious respiratory illness that can spread through coughing or sneezing. People at highest risk are those who are unvaccinated, pregnant women, infants under 6 months old, and those with weakened immune systems. Health officials ask anyone who thinks they may have the measles to call their healthcare provider, urgent care or emergency room before arriving, to minimize risk to others. Measles is preventable. Two doses of the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine are effective in preventing measles. The first dose should be administered between 12 and 15 months of age with a second dose administered between 4 and 6 years. Washoe County hasn't seen a case of measles since 1990.
