Recall Roundup: January 7, 2010

Here is today's list of food safety recalls, product withdrawals and allergy alerts. The live links will take you directly to the official recall notices and company news releases that contain detailed information for each recall and alert.

United States
  • Food Safety Recall: Bao Ding Seafood recalls boiled Horse Mackerel, because this uneviscerated fish has the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum. The recalled product was sold in New York State.
  • Food Product Withdrawal: Food City advises that Food Club Shredded Hash Browns 30 oz Pouch has been recalled. No details are given. A similar product (ShopRite Southern Style Hash Browns –32 oz.) was recalled by ShopRite earlier this week, because of the risk of Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
  • FDA Food Seizure: FDA seizes more than $1 million worth of food from Won Feng Trading Company, a Nashville food processor and warehouse to prevent the distribution of rodent-infested foods. FDA took the action after Won Feng Trading failed to correct serious sanitation and pest control deficiencies that were pointed out in a Warning Letter issued in May 2009.


Australia and New Zealand
  • Allergy Alert (Australia): Mani Fold Food Trading Pty Ltd recalls YAFANG Red Bean Jelly Popsicle (Best before 6 July 2011) because the product contains undeclared milk powder. The recalled popsicles were distributed only in New South Wales.
