FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - March 30, 2011 -Frankly Fresh, Inc. of Carson, CA. is voluntarily recalling its seafood line of products, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Although healthy individuals may suffer only shortterm symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Product was distributed in the California and Nevada Areas through retail supermarket stores. Products are packed under the Frankly Fresh label in a variety of sizes in plastic containers with safety seals on.

NO ILLNESSES HAVE BEEN REPORTED TO DATE.
The recall was the result of a routine sampling program by the FDA in conjunction with Frankly Fresh Company, which revealed that the finished products may contain the bacteria. Frankly Fresh has voluntarily ceased the production and distribution of these products as FDA and the company continue their investigation as to what caused the problem.

Consumers who have purchased Frankly Fresh Seafood Products are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company via email at we-care@franklyfresh.com and/or our hot line at 1-800-826-3322 MON-FRI from 9 to 5 Pacific Time.
