MF Fishballs Recalled For Possible Botulism Contamination

Mannarich Foods is recalling MF Fishballs from the marketplace in Canada because they may be contaminated with botulism toxin. There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products. The recalled products were “previously frozen.” They were distributed at the retail level in Ontario and Quebec.

The recalled products are all MF Fishballs and other seafood products. All units sold up to and including October 21, 2019 are recalled. They include Fishballs (previously frozen) in 180 gram packages. The UPC number on the product is 0 68636 03040 2. Also recalled is Premium cuttle fish balls (previously frozen) in 180 gram packages with UPC number 0 68636 02030 4. Lobster flavored fishballs (previously frozen) in 180 gram packages with UPC number 0 68636 03430 1 are recalled, along with Fishballs with shrimp (previously frozen) in 180 gram packages with UPC number 0 68636 02011 3.

Foods that are contaminated with Clostridium botulinum toxin will not look, smell, or taste spoiled, and the texture isn’t affected. A tiny amount of this toxin can be deadly.

If you purchased any of these products, do not eat them, even if you plan to cook them thoroughly first. Throw them away in a sealed container in a secure garbage can. You can also take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Symptoms of botulism food poisoning can include difficulty swallowing, blurred vision, slurred speech, generalized weakness, and paralysis. Botulism does not cause a fever. Symptoms progress in a symmetrical manner down the body, and eventually muscles that control breathing are affected. An antidote is available, but it must be administered in a hospital setting.
