"Authentic Vietnamese Cookery," by Corinne Trang
Bean sprouts have been missing from local stores.
The FDA and sprout producers have been steadily increasing safety standards, Enomoto said. "The industry has been making tremendous changes over the last three years."
The International Sprout Growers Association lists salmonella and e. coli as "microbial hazards" of particular concern.
HPC has always been able to keep up with the changes while staying in production, he said, but now the company finds it must shut down to revamp its plant. HPC plans to be back in production within a month and in the meantime will import mainland sprouts for its local customers.
Produce managers at several Oahu supermarkets said they were caught by surprise a few days ago when their shelves went bare, but plan to have mainland sprouts in their stores by the end of the week.
