Dec. 3, 2019 — Nearly two dozen sorts of pre-made sushi offered at Trader Joe’s and different shops in more than 30 states have been recalled over issues it might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
Fuji Foods introduced the recall, which incorporates ready-to-eat sushi, salads, and spring rolls offered to pick retailers and distributors alongside the East Coast and elements of the Midwest.
While no reviews of sicknesses have been reported, the FDA found the issue throughout a routine inspection of Fuji’s Brockton, MA, facility. That facility has shut down because the investigation continues.
All of the merchandise are packed in plastic trays with clear lids and sell-by dates. The merchandise have been offered at 7-Eleven, Walgreens, Food Lion, Hannaford, Trader Joe’s, Giant Eagle Supermarkets, Porkys, Bozzutos, Supreme Lobster, and Superior Foods within the following states: Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, D.C., West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
