About this Deal
First, there were the salmonella-contaminated onions and now, Trader Joe's is being forced to recall another beloved product for a very frightening reason: Orca Bay Foods, LLC is recalling 4,450 lb. (356 cases) of Trader Joe's brand Gluten Free Battered Halibut, because it contains undeclared wheat and milk allergens, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revealed on Oct. 23. People who bought the fish presumably sought out a product without gluten, and could potentially have an allergy or sensitivity to wheat and milk. So, consuming the so-called "gluten free" fish now runs them the risk of a serious or even life-threatening allergic reaction. Read on for what you need to know about this recall, and for another dangerous product being yanked off the shelves, check out This Common Household Item Has Been Recalled Over Fire Risk.
"If you purchased any of the Gluten Free Battered Halibut … and have an allergy or sensitivity to wheat and/or milk, please do not eat it," Trader Joe's posted on its website on Oct. 23. "We urge you to discard the product or return it to any Trader Joe's for a full refund."
If you have the Gluten Free Battered Halibut in your freezer, check the end of the box for the following text, "537312620 Best If Used By Nov 5, 2021," as these are the affected products.
The contaminated fish were sold in Trader Joe's stores in 19 states: Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, and Wisconsin. Luckily, no illnesses have been reported to date.
According to the FDA, consumers who have purchased the fish are "urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund." You can also call 1-800-932-ORCA on Monday through Friday (from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. PST), Trader Joe's Customer Relations at 626-599-3817 on Monday through Friday (from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. PST), or send Trader Joe's an email.
