LOS ANGELES, CA – Kawasho Foods U.S.A. has expanded a recall of Geisha canned shrimp due to potentially lethal toxin contamination concerns.
The original recall, issued on February 27, 2023, covered four-ounce cans of Geisha shrimp sold at major retailers such as Walmart, Albertsons, Safeway, Associated Food Stores, and Stater Bros Markets in California, Utah, Arizona, and Colorado. The expanded recall, issued on April 21, now includes all lots of the product distributed nationwide, spanning across multiple states in the U.S.
“Kawasho Foods is taking this step out of an abundance of caution due to a concern that there is a possibility that the product has been under-processed, which could lead to the potential for spoilage organisms or pathogens,” the company stated. The recall includes products with UPC label #071140003909 that were sold from December 2022 through February 2023.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has advised consumers not to use the recalled product, even if it does not appear spoiled or smell off. As of now, no illnesses or adverse consequences have been reported in connection with this product, according to the FDA
