June 7, 2022 — The Alabama-based company Irvington Seafood has recalled 1-lb. containers of crabmeat after Listeria bacteria was found on equipment.
The recall involves “Crabmeat: Jumbo, Lump, Finger, and Claw meat.”
The products were sold to distributors in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi.
Consumers can identify the recalled products by license number AL 111-C and the company name “Irvington Seafood.”
The following batch numbers may be written on the bottom of the container: 130, 131, 132, 134, 137, 139, 141, 144, 145, 146, 148, or 150.
There were no illnesses reported. Instead, the recall was announced after the FDA found Listeria monocytogenes on cooking equipment and also in the cooking room. The crabmeat itself did not test positive, but there is a risk of cross-contamination.
Listeria infections can be serious and sometimes fatal, especially for young children, elderly adults, people with vulnerable immune systems. Pregnant women may show few symptoms, but suffer a miscarriage or stillbirth.
