About two dozen kinds of ready-to-eat sushi sold at Trader Joe's, 7 Eleven, and other stores have been recalled over concerns of it being contaminated with Listeria moncytogenes.
Fuji Food Products, Inc. announced the recall, which includes pre-made sushi, salads, and spring rolls sold to stores in more than 30 states, including Wisconsin.
While no illnesses have been reported, the FDA discovered the problem during a routine inspection at a Massachusetts facility. That facility has shut down as they investigate.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes deadly infections in young children or others with weakened immune systems. While some may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
All of the products were packed in plastic trays with clear lids and sell-by dates are on the labels.
