A Washington state-based seafood company is recalling more than 4,450 pounds of Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Battered Halibut because the product contains undeclared wheat and milk allergens. The product, which is sold in 10-oz. boxes could pose a serious risk to consumers with such allergies.
The fish, sold in Trader Joe’s locations across Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont and Wisconsin, is marked with SKU 00503822.
The package has code 537312620 and is marked with a best by date of Nov. 5, 2021, according to the FDA recall notice.
In a separate recall notice posted to its website, Trader Joe’s said all affected products had been removed from stores and destroyed.
