SM Fish Corp. Issues Allergy Alert On Undeclared Eggs In Ossie’s Pickled Lox & Cream
SM Fish Corp.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 22, 2015 – SM Fish Corp. of FAR ROCKAWAY, NY is recalling 8 ounce containers of OSSIE’S PICKLED LOX & CREAM because it contains undeclared eggs. People who have an allergy to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The product was distributed to retail stores in NY and NJ.
OSSIE’S PICKLED LOX & CREAM, NET WT. 8 OZ., is packed in clear, plastic containers bearing UPC code 739885104113 and date code “06/04/15” (represents expiration date) located on the bottom of the plastic tub.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered during the current FDA inspection that the containers did not list the sub-ingredients of the mayonnaise, which contains eggs, used in the product. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's packaging processes.
Consumers who have purchased the item are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 718-945-9800, Monday – Friday, 9 am – 4 pm, ET.
