Gorton's Seafood Recalls Fish Fillets over Potential Adulteration

03/04/2008
GLOUCESTER, Mass. -- Gorton's Seafood here said it has recalled a single SKU of frozen fish fillets because the products might have been adulterated with pills. The recall involves slightly over 1,000 cases of product, Gorton's spokesman Judson Reis told Progressive Grocer yesterday. The company said that a family in central Pennsylvania reported finding pills in the product, but there have been no reports of illnesses from consuming the product.

Gorton's recalled 11.4-ounce packages of Gorton's 6 Crispy Battered Fish Fillets with the UPC number 4440015770, date code of 7289G1, and a best-if-used-by date of April 2009. It said it produced the products on Oct. 16, 2007 and distributed them to retail outlets in Alabama, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.

Gorton's said it is conducting an investigation as to the origin the adulteration in concert with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the Food & Drug Administration.
