If You Bought This Fish From Costco, Throw It Out Now

The pack of 12 could contain small pieces of metal.

If you're a frequent Costco shopper, you could have purchased a product listed in a new recall. The Trident Seafoods Pacific Salmon Burger is being recalled because it may contain small pieces of metal, according to a notice on the FDA's website.

Trident says it's not aware of the source of the small metal pieces yet and there have been no illnesses related to the salmon burgers to date, but that consumption of the product poses a choking hazard or another physical injury. Anyone with the salmon burgers in their kitchen should "discontinue use and return it to their local Costco for a full refund," Trident says.

The salmon burgers come in a blue and orange box of 12 that weighs 3lbs. They have a lot number of GC101431 and a "Best by" date of 01/14/2023.

"Trident Seafoods takes food safety very seriously and is investigating this situation thoroughly," the company says in the recall announcement, noting that anyone who is concerned "about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider."

The Costco salmon burger recall isn't the only one issued lately. Bags of frozen bell peppers and onions are being recalled because they could contain small pieces of blue plastic. And while no official cause has been determined, one person has had a confirmed case of norovirus and two dozen more were ill after eating at one location of this popular fast-food sandwich shop.
