Phone: 502-775-6478

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - February 1, 2011 - Shuckman’s Fish Co. of Louisville, KY is updating their recall of its 8 ounce packages of Mooney’s Kentucky Bourbon Cheese and ValuMarket Beer Cheese Spread because they may contain undeclared soy and anchovy puree.  People who have allergies to soy and fish run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The products in question are:

Mooney’s Kentucky Bourbon Cheese, 8 oz plastic container, Lot 010511 Sell By 04/05/2011, Lot 012111 Sell By 04/19/11; UPC 8 28260 10038 0

ValuMarket Beer Cheese Spread, 8 oz plastic container, Lot 91610 Sell by 11-16-2010, Lot 92810 Sell By 11-28-10, Lot 101810 Sell By 12-18-2010, Lot 102210 Sell By 12-22-10, Lot 111210 Sell By 01/12/11, Lot 112610 Sell By 01/26/11, Lot 121310 Sell By 03/13/11, Lot 011411 Sell By 04/14/11, Lot 011711 Sell By 04/17/2011; UPC 0 28260 12501 1.

Products are sold to retail stores in Kentucky.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the soy and anchovy puree containing products were distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of soy and anchovy puree.  Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s production and packaging processes.

Consumers who have purchased the products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-502-775-6478 Monday through Friday 8:00a.m to 3:00p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Rouses Markets Voluntarily Recalls Frozen Yellow Fin Tuna Steaks Due To Possible Health Risks

Contact:
Rouses Markets
800-688-5998

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - February 4, 2011 - Rouses Markets (mailto:www.rouses.com?subject=) announced the voluntary recall of wild-caught yellow fin tuna steaks labeled as product of USA with a UPC Code beginning with 208732 sold at Rouses Markets with Sell By dates between December 1, 2010 and January 27, 2011. These previously frozen tuna steaks are being recalled because of potential elevated levels of histamine. This recall does not impact any other fish or seafood sold by Rouses Markets.

High levels of histamine can produce an allergic reaction, called histamine fish poisoning or scrombroid fish poisoning, that may result in symptoms that generally appear within minutes to an hour after eating the affected fish. There have been two reported incidents by consumers. Rouses Markets feels that while these were isolated incidents, this is the responsible reaction, and that every precautionary measure should be taken when it comes to its customers’ health and safety.

The following are the most common symptoms of histamine or scromboid fish poisoning: tingling or burning sensation in the mouth, facial swelling, rash, hives and itchy skin, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea; these symptoms usually resolve within several hours without medical intervention. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently; if symptoms are severe an individual may need to seek medical attention for treatment with antihistamines.

If consumers have wild-caught yellow fin tuna steaks in their freezer with the indicated UPC code and Sell By dates, they may return the product to the store for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company by calling 1-800-688-5998, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Central Time.

The wild caught yellow fin tuna steaks were distributed to the two states where Rouses Markets operates: Louisiana and Mississippi. Rouses Market has removed the affected product from all seafood cases.
