More South Korean shellfish has been recalled.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today (Monday) expanded a May 15th recall to include canned products, as well as fresh and frozen shellfish from South Korea. An FDA investigation into the Korean Shellfish Sanitation Program found serious problems, including norovirus in shellfish growing areas.
The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation confirms that four varieties of Crown Prince canned oysters from South Korea were distributed in the state, including:
-Crown Prince Whole Boiled Oysters
-Crown Prince Natural Whole Boiled Oysters
-Crown Prince Natural Smoked Oysters in Olive Oil
-Crown Prince Natural Smoked Oysters with Chili Pepper
DEC says customers who purchased any of the affected products should contact Crown Prince at 1-800-423-4676, or by email at email@example.com.
