This Trader Joe’s Seafood Is Being Recalled in 19 States
Almost 5,000 pounds and more than 350 cases of Trader Joe's Gluten Free Battered Halibut are being recalled, because they may contain undeclared wheat and milk allergens, according to the FDA. The fish was sold at stores in 19 states across the country.
The recall was reported by the FDA after it was discovered that the product did not disclose the potential allergens on its packaging. Individuals with an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk or wheat may endure life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume the recalled seafood. No illnesses have been reported thus far.

It was subsequently sold at locations in Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, and Wisconsin.
The packages have an SKU code of 00503822 and an affected code of 537312620. On the bottom of the box is a best if used by date of Nov. 5, 2021. Customers who purchased the halibut should return it to the point of purchase for a full refund—or safely dispose of it.
This is far from the only food recall that's been issued in recent weeks. Jars of this jelly, pizza dough, and a long list of spices like parsley are several of the items you should take a second look at before you check out at the grocery store right now.
