A California company is recalling fish skin snacks from Singapore because they were not presented for import re-inspection to the United States.
Golden Pearl Trading Corp., doing business as Dandy Food Products, has recalled about 12,000 pounds of ready-to-eat imported catfish products, according to a notice posted by the USDA’s Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS).
In addition to the re-inspection violation, the company imported the snacks from Singapore, which is not eligible to export ready-to-eat catfish (Siluriformes) to the United States.
The FSIS discovered the problems during a routine inspection activity, according to the recall notice. The agency reported the snacks were produced on or around Sept. 26 through Dec. 24, 2019.
Consumers can determine whether they have the recalled fish skin snacks by looking for the following: 113-gram foil bags labeled as “Sugar Kid SALTED EGG FISH SKIN.”
“FSIS is concerned that consumers may still be in possession of the product. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them,” according to the recall notice.
No illnesses or adverse reactions had been confirmed in relation to the recalled product as of the posting of the recall notice.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Robert Moore, managing director of Golden Pearl Trading Corp., at 408-836-7923 or at Robert@dandyfood.com.
