WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing a public health alert because A & S Produce Inc., a Vernon, Calif. establishment conducting business as Greenland Food Company, produced and distributed fully cooked, frozen swai fried fish cutlet products without the benefit of federal inspection.

A recall was not requested because the products are no longer available for purchase.

The fully cooked, frozen swai fried fish cutlet products — 1-lb. vacuum-packed packages containing “Fried Fish Cutlet” â€” were produced from July 2022 to September 2022 and have a shelf life of two years.

The products involved in this public health alert do not bear the establishment number or a USDA mark of inspection. These items were sold at retail locations in California and through online sales.

FSIS discovered the problem when it was conducting surveillance at an online retailer and found FSIS-regulated products without a USDA mark of inspection.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.  

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Media and consumers with questions regarding the public health alert can contact Mimi Jang, owner of A & S Produce Inc., at 323-260-5100.
