Listeria Alert Issued for Seafood Salad

A California company is recalling various seafood salad products, including ceviche, seafood cocktail and seafood louies, because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Carson-based Frankly Fresh said routine sampling of some of its products by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration revealed contamination. As a result, the company agreed to the recall of its line of products, and temporarily halted production and distribution.  Frankly Fresh said it is working with the FDA to investigate what caused the problem.

No illnesses have been reported.

The products, in a variety of sizes in plastic containers, were distributed in California and Nevada through retail supermarkets. They carry the Frankly Fresh label and safety seals.

A list of the products, UPC code numbers and dates is posted on the FDA website.

Customers who purchased Frankly Fresh Seafood Products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.  For more information contact the company via email at we-care@franklyfresh.com or its hot line at 1-800-826-3322 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
