BALTIMORE, MD—Fuji Food Products, Inc. (Fuji) announced today the voluntary recall of ready to eat sushi, salads, and spring rolls sold to select retailers and distributors along the East Coast and Upper Midwest.
The voluntary recall is in response to a notification by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the potential for product contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
To date, public health officials have not reported any illness associated with these products.
Fuji Food Products is issuing this recall out of an abundance of caution. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.
Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Fuji Food Products will continue to work closely with the authorities to investigate the issue.
The problem was discovered in their Brockton Massachusetts facility by a routine inspection conducted by the FDA. The company has ceased production and distribution of their products in this facility as FDA and the company continue their investigation as to what caused this problem. Fuji Food Products has never before recalled any of its products.
“As responsible processors of safe, fresh food for nearly 30 years, we are addressing this problem vigorously and we apologize to those who are affected by it,” said Fuji Food Products CEO Farrell Hirsch. “We will restart operation only after we have eliminated the cause and the FDA certifies that our facility is once again free of possible contamination.”
The products are packed in plastic trays with clear lids and the sell-by dates are on the labels. Consumers who have purchased any of the following products affected by this recall should dispose of the product in an appropriate waste container.
For inquiries consumers are welcome to call the customer service line at 1-888-667-1504.
