Recall of beef and fish products from two companies


CLEVELAND, Ohio — Two companies are recalling beef and fish products under separate recalls, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Valley International Cold Storage Acquisition of Harlingen, Texas is recalling approximately 22,061 pounds of frozen beef products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. The product contains milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the label.

The products are labeled as Korean-style beef, but contain chicken sausage and a pepper product, which contains milk. The articles were produced on July 22. The 9.25-ounce cartons labeled as “Healthy Choice Korean-Style Beef Power Bowls” have lot code 5246220320 and a “best before” date of 04/18/2023. They bear the establishment number P-34622 on the end flap of the box.

Items have been shipped to outlets nationwide.

In addition, Yumei Foods USA Inc. of City of Industry, California is recalling approximately 9,370 pounds of imported catfish products. The products were imported from the People’s Republic of China, a country not permitted to export processed catfish products to the United States.

The products – freeze-dried technology fish without preservatives – are presented in plastic packaging:

• 13.051 ounces (370 g) Fish fillet with spicy soup.

• 12.35 oz (350 g) fish fillet with marinated soup.

The products — which do not bear an establishment number or USDA inspection mark — were shipped to retailers and wholesalers nationwide.

Consumption of beef or fish products has not resulted in confirmed reports of adverse effects. FSIS is concerned that some products are in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are asked not to consume them. These products should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase.
