There is undeclared wheat in a few of Starkist’s SeaSations Frozen White Fish Fillet products. The FDA announced StarKist’s agreement to the voluntary recall late last week. This recall could affect you depending on where you live, so check the information below closely and feel free to read the rest of the news release in more detail:
“As a precautionary measure, due to mislabeling, StarKist Co. is initiating a voluntary recall of two SeaSations® frozen white whole fish fillet products – Thai with Basil, UPC # 80000 50007 and Teriyaki Orange and Ginger, UPC # 80000 50112. All 11.4 oz packages of these two varieties have been recalled, regardless of Best By Date or Manufacturing Code. SeaSations is a test market product, and is therefore in limited retail distribution in the following states: Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
All other varieties of SeaSations are correctly labeled and therefore are not affected by this voluntary recall. Additionally, no StarKist® tuna products are included in this recall.
StarKist Co. is voluntarily recalling these two SeaSations varieties due to the presence of wheat, which was not declared as an allergen in the ingredient statement. People who are allergic to wheat may run a risk of serious adverse health consequences by consuming this product. To date, no illnesses have been reported – individuals without an allergy to wheat may continue to enjoy this product.”
