Update: Irvington Seafood Recalls Crabmeat Over Potential Listeria Contamination

Irvington Seafood has issued a recall for its 1 lb. packages of “Crabmeat: Jumbo, Lump, Finger, and Claw meat” because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, “an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems,” according to an FDA Recall Notice dated May 17, 2024 [1.].

The recalled crab meat was sold in 1 lb. tubs, package marked with license number AL 111-C with the company name “Irvington Seafood.” Affected products were sold to distributors in Alabama and Mississippi; the finished crab meat may end up in retail seafood markets or restaurants.

If you purchased any crab meat that is affected by this recall, you should not eat it, and either throw it away immediately or return it to the point of purchase for a refund. Production of the product has been suspended pending an investigation into the source of the contamination.

What’s the problem?

September 17, 2010 – Crab meat sold under the brand’s Hallmark, Peacock, Yaquina Bay, and Quality Ocean International is being recalled because some of its packaged crab meat could be contaminated with listeria. The crab meat in question comes in five-pound cans, one-pound vacuum packs, one-pound plastic tubs, and eight-ounce plastic tubs.
