Fulton Seafood Inc., a Houston, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 100,924 pounds of Siluriformes fish products, specifically wild caught catfish, because the products were produced, packed, and distributed without the benefit of federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.

The wild caught catfish items were produced on various dates from Jan. 1, 2018 through Feb. 21, 2019. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 60-lb. brown cardboard boxes containing “River Catfish Wild USA.” Upon arrival at retail locations, the catfish were removed from boxes and placed in the seafood display case for consumer purchase.

These items were shipped to retail locations within Texas.                                 

The problem was discovered on Feb. 19, 2019, when a FSIS investigator observed Siluriformes products bearing no marks of federal inspection, while performing surveillance activities in a cold storage facility.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
