Just one day after Q’s America Best Trading Inc. recalled 1,008 pounds of frozen Sheat fish, Richwell Group Inc. has recalled 55,300 pounds of frozen Sheat fish known as Siluriformes fish. The recalled frozen fish was not re-inspected at the time of import by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The frozen Sheat fish was imported from Vietnam to the U.S. from April 2018 to December 2018. The fish has a two-year shelf life and was distributed nationwide.

The affected fish was packaged in 14-ounce packages and was labeled as Maxfield Seafood SHEAT FISH CA TREN KET. It has an expiry date of 200324, 200403, 201007, 201008, 201113, 201115, 201222 and 201227. Labels of the recalled products can be viewed here.

The FSIS is urging consumers to check their freezers for the recalled fish. They should not consume the fish and should either throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.

The company has not received any reports of adverse reactions from consumers that have consumed the recalled fish. Consumers that are concerned about reactions to the frozen fish should contact their healthcare provider.

Consumer questions about the recall should be directed to Bradley Martin, general manager and vice president at Richwell Group, at 626-964-8230.
