Delight Foods USA LLC, with locations in both New Jersey and California, have issued a recall for a product not approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Roughly 2,600 pounds of the frozen Siluriformes (catfish) were imported from India, a country ineligible to export the product to the United States. The two-pound plastic packages are labeled “Seafood delight FRESH FROZEN CATFISH STEAK IF” frozen fish and do not bear a USDA mark of inspection. They were distributed to retail locations nationwide.
The USDA was made aware of the issue due to routine surveillance; no adverse reactions have been reported by consumers.
The federal agency urges buyers to throw away the product or return it to the place of purchase. It is not advised to consume the food.
Consumers who wish to report a problem with a meat, poultry, or egg product can do so 24 hours a day here.
