- Shiitake-Ya Brand Gourmet Shiitake Slices – ‘SELL BY date’ of 04/16/2013
These mushrooms are packaged in 6 oz. plastic jars, with the SELL BY date located at the bottom portion of the rear label.

Consumers who have any of the above-listed mushrooms in their possession should discard them immediately or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
