The Food and Drug Administration has issued a recall of some seafood products in Texas and Louisiana because of possible Listeria contamination.

The FDA says that restaurants and food retailers that have received shipments of Topway Enterprises Inc. or Kazy's Gourmet ready-to-eat (RTE) seafood products, particularly salmon and tuna for raw consumption should stop selling and discard the products due to possible Listeria contamination.

The products were received from July 10 to July 13, 2019.

Officials say that these seafood products may be incorporated into sushi. These products are typically sold fresh and do not have a long shelf life, though they can be frozen to extend the shelf life.

Consumers, especially women who are or could become pregnant, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems who have recently consumed raw seafood products, particularly raw salmon and tuna in Texas and Louisiana and suspect they have food poisoning should seek medical care immediately.
