The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing a public health alert because A & S Produce Inc., of Vernon, CA, establishment conducting business as Greenland Food Company, produced and distributed fully cooked, frozen swai fried fish cutlet products without the benefit of federal inspection.
These items were sold at retail locations in California and through online sales.

Product subject to the public health alert:
