US retailers recall seafood meals-to-go

Albertsons, Randalls, and Tom Thumb are recalling seafood meals-to-go in their retail locations in three U.S. states because of possible bacterial contamination.

The retailers are working with Mann Packing, the supplier of the “Ready. Chef. Go!” seafood meal bags, to recall the bags due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination, according to a statement from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

“The bags include vegetables that are subject to the Mann Packing recall,” the FDA said. “No illnesses or injuries have been reported in connection with the Mann Packing [recall]. The Ready. Chef. Go! seafood meal bags have been recalled out of an abundance of caution.”

The recall applies only to the retailers’ stores in Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas.

The recall encompasses all "Ready. Chef. Go!" meal bags with sell-through dates up to and including 22 October, 2017, which feature seafood such as: Flounder Fillet, Atlantic Salmon Fillet, Halibut Fillet, Tuna Loin, and Catfish Fillets.

Customers who purchased the recalled product should discard or return it to the store they purchased it at for a full refund, according to the FDA.
