FDA Suspends Food Facility Registration of SM Fish Corp

September 21, 2016 - FDA:

No food from the facility may be sold or distributed, Ossie’s and Ossie’s Gourmet ready-to-eat seafood products recalled

  • FDA is using authorities granted under the 2011 FDA Food Safety Modernization Act to suspend the food facility registration of SM Fish Corp. of Far Rockaway, NY, because food, including ready-to-eat (RTE) food, from this facility may be contaminated with L. monocytogenes (Listeria).
  • Consumers with any un-expired RTE food products manufactured by SM Fish should not eat these products, which were sold at the company’s seven retail outlets located in New York and New Jersey, and instead throw these products away. This is an expansion from the July 29, 2016 recall to include all un-expired RTE foods from SM Fish.
  • Consumers should be aware that symptoms of listeriosis can appear from a few days up to a few weeks after consumption of contaminated food.
  • FDA’s decision to suspend the registration of SM Fish was prompted by a second 2016 inspection showing widespread and persistent Listeria contamination throughout its food facility.
  • No food from SM Fish’s facility may be sold or distributed while the food facility registration is suspended.
