All of the tilapia products being recalled were produced between 31 January and 6 June, 2017. They have been sold in retail outlets of Supervalu, Harris Teeter, Cantanese Classic Seafoods, The Fish Guys, Euro USA, Bfresh, Porky Products, and Superior Fish Company in seven states including Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Massachusetts, New York, and Minnesota. 

“These products are typically sold fresh can be found in the full service or self-service seafood case,” the company said in its release.

Slade Gorton initiated the recall on 6 June after being notified by its breading vendor, Newly Weds Foods, that its pre-dust and breading from three product codes and five purchase orders may have included milk. Consumers who have purchased any of the affected products can return them to the store from which they were purchased for a full refund.

Slade Gorton said in its release that it has not yet received any reports of illnesses and that it has initiated processes in its manufacturing facilities to remove the tainted ingredients and discontinue their use in future products.
