Price Chopper Has Recalled bulk imitation crabmeat

Binghamton, NY (SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that Price Chopper has recalled all bulk imitation crabmeat from the service Seafood case. The product tested positive for listeria monocytogenes in routine random sampling conducted by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. There have been no reported illnesses associated with this recall.

Customers may return any unused portions Price Chopper for a refund.
