Uninspected frozen Swai fillets shipped to warehouse/distribution centers and retail locations in Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, and South Carolina are being recalled by H&T Seafood Inc., the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The frozen Swai fillet items were packed and distributed without the benefit of USDA inspection but used the mark of inspection without authorization.
The problem was discovered by FSIS personnel during surveillance at a retail store.
The following product is subject to recall:
1-lb. plastic bags containing frozen fillets of “FISHERMAN’S WHARF SWAI FILLETS PRODUCT OF VIETNAM” with any USDA mark of inspection.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution lists will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Dat Huynh, Controller, H&T Seafood, at (626) 679-1776.
