The affected items were shipped to distributors nationwide and further distributed to restaurants and retail locations. The retail locations are in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, the recall stated.

A customer complaint prompted an investigation and subsequent recall, but no adverse reactions linked to the recalled products have been reported to date.

The agency is concerned, however, that some of the recalled products may be in consumers’ or restaurants’ freezers or refrigerators, and consumers are advised to not eat the products. Meanwhile, restaurants are urged not to serve the products and to discard all affected products or return them to the place of purchase.
