US grocery chain recalls sushi over possible bacteria
Schenectady, New York-based Price Chopper is recalling several varieties of tuna sushi due to potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
Although the affected products, supplied by AFC Sushi, were only two Price Chopper stores – in Edwardsville, Pennsylvania and Rotterdam, New York – sushi made with tuna manufactured by AFC has been recalled from all of the chain’s stores as a precaution, the retailer, which operates 132 Price Chopper and Market 32 Supermarkets, said a statement.
The sushi was sold in various package styles at the deli section in Price Chopper and Market 32 Supermarkets stores.
Consumers who have eaten sushi bought at a Price Chopper or Market 32 location and have developed symptoms should seek medical attention immediately. It can take up to 70 days after exposure for symptoms to appear, so anyone who has eaten the sushi should monitor themselves for symptoms of infection in the coming weeks, Price Chopper said.
The grocery chain is offering consumers full refunds when they return the recalled sushi to stores.
