US importer recalls Chinese catfish product
Super World Trading is recalling more than 26,000 pounds of a ready-to-eat catfish product from China.
The Brooklyn, New York-based company is recalling the catfish-containing “Golden Spoon Hot Pot Fish Chips” from the People’s Republic of China, since China is ineligible to export processed siluriformes products to the United States, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said in a press release.
The products were shipped to retail and wholesale locations nationwide. The problem was discovered during a routine surveillance of imported products, according to FSIS.
The Golden Spoon Hot Pot Fish Chips are packaged in a 4.23-ounce plastic tray.
The FSIS is urging consumers who have purchased the recalled products not to eat them.
“These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase,” the agency said.
