On June 13, The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reported that Yumei Foods USA is recalling approximately 9,370 pounds of imported Siluriformes products, which were imported from the People’s Republic of China, a country ineligible to export processed Siluriformes products to the United States.
The following products are subject to recall, regardless of the product date [View Labels]:
- 13.051 oz. (370g) plastic packages containing “FISH FILLET WITH SPICY SOUP” Freeze Dried Technology Fish. No Preservative.
- 12.35 oz. (350g) plastic packages containing “FISH FILLET WITH PICKLED SOUP” Freeze Dried Technology Fish. No Preservative.
The products do not bear an establishment number nor a USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail and wholesale locations nationwide.
The problem was discovered during a routine FSIS surveillance activity of imported products. China is eligible to import raw Siluriformes products into the United States, but not processed or ready to eat Siluriformes products.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
FSIS is concerned that consumers may still be in possession of the product. 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.
When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website.
