What’s the Problem?
According to a Recall Notice by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), this action affects all Norpac Fisheries fresh garlic shrimp poke distributed to Safeway stores in Hawaii on The Big Island, Maui, Oahu, and Kauai between May 11, 2020 and June 25, 2020.
Affected products are sold as pre-mixed in plastic pouches and are dished out in various weight increments into a “deli cup,” FDA said.
The problem was found when an independent lab identified the presence of listeria in samples of Norpac Fisheries shrimp poke taken during routine testing. Norpac has ceased the production and distribution of the product while the FDA investigates the source of the contamination.
If you purchased any shrimp poke that is affected by this recall, you should not eat it, and either throw it away or return it to the point of purchase for a refund. Anyone concerned about a potential listeria infection should contact their healthcare provider immediately.
This recall began on June 28, 2020.
