Seattle, Washington, USA-based processor Trident Seafoods has issued a voluntary recall of certain cod products because they may contain small pieces of plastic.
“The source of the white plastic has been identified as inspection tags used by an ingredient supplier,” the supplier said in a statement. “Trident Seafoods takes food safety very seriously and is investigating this situation thoroughly.”
The recall affects select lots of Trident’s Multi-Grain Alaskan Cod in 12-ounce packages that were sold in Albertsons, Cub Foods, Jewel, Morey’s, Plaza Extra, Shaw’s, Shoprite, Sprouts, Supervalu, and Woodman’s stores, as well as on Amazon.
The affected lots include: Lot Number A633511, distributed between 12/1/2016 and 2/9/2017 to Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington, and Wisconson; and Lot Number A636225, distributed between 1/23/2017 and 2/17/2017 to Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.
While there have been no reports of injury or illness related to the recalled products to date, “anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider,” Trident said.
Consumers who have purchased the affected lots should throw them away or return them to the place of purchase, the company said.
