Maxfield Seafood Siluriformes Recalled For Lack of Inspection

Another brand of siluriformes, a type of catfish, has been recalled for lack of inspection. Richwell Group, doing business as Maxfield Seafood, is recalling about 55,300 pounds of Siluriformes fish products that were not presented for import re-inspection into the country. No confirmed reports of adverse reactions have been received to date, by the company or the government.

The problem was discovered on January 30, 2019, during FSIS surveillance activities at the company’s facility.

The recalled items are frozen Siluriformes, specifically Sheat fish. They were imported from Vietnam to the U.S. on dates ranging from April 2018 through December 2018. The recalled products are:

  • 14-ounce clear bag packages containing Richwell Group “Maxfield Seafood SHEAT FISH CA TREN KET” with “EXPIRY DATE” of 200324, 200403, 201007, 201008, 201113, 201115, 201222, and 201227.
  • 14-ounce clear bag packages containing “Maxfield Seafood SHEAT FISH CA TREN RANG” with “EXPIRY DATE” (some labels don’t display an expiration date) of 200324, 200403, 201007, 201008, 201113, 201115, 201222, and 201227.

These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide. There is no information about a USDA mark of inspection.

In the past few weeks, there have been recalls of Sheat fish by Q’s American Best Trading, H & T Seafood, and Mannarich Food. All of these recalls were for lack of inspection.

If you purchased any of these products, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed or double bagged package, or take them back to the store where you purchased them for a full refund.

FSIS thinks that some of these products may be in consumers’ home freezers. Check your freezer carefully. FSIS is making sure that the firm is notifying customers about this recall by conducting recall effectiveness checks.
