USDA announces fish recall dating from 2018


The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is concerned that some fish on a current recall may be in peoples' freezers. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. 

Approximately 121,151 pounds of various Siluriformes fish (Catfish) items were imported on various dates between March 20, 2018 through May 4, 2019 from Bangladesh and Myanmar. Both countries are ineligible to export Siluriformes fish product to the U.S. 

Illinois is one of nine states to which the fish (see spreadsheet) were shipped. 

The problem was discovered during routine FSIS surveillance activities of imported products. Products were not presented for import re-inspection the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
