Brockton Facility Triggers Food Recall In 31 States, Including MA –


A Brockton food facility announced a voluntary recall of ready-to-eat sushi, salads and spring rolls that were sold at retailers in 31 states, including Massachusetts.

The products were sold at Trader Joe’s, 7-Eleven, Walgreens, Food Lion, Hannaford, Giant Eagle Supermarkets, Porkys, Bozzutos, Supreme Lobster and Superior Foods.

Fuji Food Products Inc. voluntarily issued the recall after a notification from the Food and Drug Administration of the potential for product contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

To date, no illnesses with these products have been reported.

The products are packed in plastic trays with clear lids and the sell-by dates are on the labels., the FDA said on its site. Consumers who have purchased any of the products should throw them away.

The issue was discovered in Fuji’s Brockton facility by a routine inspection conducted by the FDA.

“As responsible processors of safe, fresh food for nearly 30 years, we are addressing this problem vigorously and we apologize to those who are affected by it,” said Fuji Food Products CEO Farrell Hirsh. “We will restart operation only after we have eliminated the cause and the FDA certifies that our facility is once again free of possible contamination.”

All of the sell-by dates are in November and December. Check the FDA recall for the full list of affected products, their sell-by dates and where they were sold.
