Brockton food facility announces voluntary recall of contaminated food


A food facility from Brockton has announced that it is going to recall voluntarily a few of its products. The products which are being recalled are salads, ready-to-eat sushi and spring rolls which had been sold at retailers in as many as 31 states which included the state of Massachusetts.

The said products had been sold at places like 7-Eleven, Food Lion, Walgreens, Hannaford, Trader Joe’s, Porkys, Giant Eagle Supermarket, Superior Foods and Supreme Lobster.

The company which is named Fuji Food Products Inc. has issued a recall voluntarily after a notification had been received from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) about the potential contamination of the products due to Listeria monocytogenes being found in them.

Till date there has been no illness that has been reported by the usage of these products.

These are products that are packed in trays that have clear lids and the dates by when they are supposed to be sold on their labels. FDA on its website has said that the consumers who have purchased any of these products must exercise caution and throw these products away.

The issue had been discovered in the Brockton facility of Fuji while a routine inspection was being conducted by FDA.

The CEO of Fuji Food Products Farrell Hirsh has said that being processors of fresh and safe food for close to 30 years, they are looking into this problem vigorously. They also apologized to everyone who had been affected by this issue.
