SM Fish Corp. Issues Allergy Alert On Undeclared Milk In Ossie’s Herring In Sourcream And Ossie’s Pickled Lox Dairy Products
SM Fish Corp.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 22, 2015 – SM Fish Corp. of FAR ROCKAWAY, NY is recalling 8 ounce containers of OSSIE’S HERRING IN SOURCREAM and OSSIE’S PICKLED LOX DAIRY because they contain undeclared milk. People who have an allergy to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume these products.
The products were distributed to retail stores in NY and NJ.
OSSIE’S HERRING IN SOURCREAM, NET WT. 8 OZ., is packed in clear, plastic containers bearing UPC code 739885114174 with date code “06/08/15” (represents expiration date) located on the bottom of the tub. OSSIE’S PICKLED LOX DAIRY, Net Wt. 8 OZ., is packed in clear, plastic containers bearing UPC code 739885114136 and date code “06/08/15” (represents expiration date) located on the bottom of the 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 sour cream, which contains milk, used in the products. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's packaging processes.
Consumers who have purchased these items are urged to return themt 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.
