Trader Joe’s has recalled over 4,400 pounds of frozen fish

Trader Joe’s is pulling its Gluten Free Battered Halibut off shelves after discovering undeclared wheat and milk in the product.

The popular grocery store issued a recall notice on its website for 10 oz. boxes of halibut that were packaged with the SKU# 50382 and the product code 537312620. The affected product from supplier Orca Bay Foods, LLC had a “best if used by” date of November 5, 2021 and was sold in 19 states (see a full list here) including New Hampshire, Kansas, Kentucky, New York, Massachusetts and Maine.

No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported so far, but Trader Joe’s encouraged shoppers who recently purchased the product to proceed with caution if they have a wheat or milk allergy or sensitivity.

“We urge you to discard the product or return it to any Trader Joe’s for a full refund,” the company wrote.

According to a separate recall notice on the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s website, the recall “was initiated after it was discovered that product containing Wheat and Milk was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of the allergens.”

Failure to properly label these ingredients can cause big problems for those who try to avoid them for dietary or medical reasons.

“People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat and milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product,” the notice reads.

Following this discovery, Trader Joe’s and Orca Bay Foods removed all of the affected product from sale and destroyed 4,450 lb. (356 cases) of the frozen fish.

3 tips that helped this man lose 155 pounds, run half-marathons

In 2018, Matthew Morgan made a New Year’s resolution that sounded a lot like ones he made in the past: He vowed to lose weight. Then in February he had a minor heart attack. But instead of letting that derail his goals, it emphasized how he needed to stick with his healthy habits.

“I used it as motivation. I actually suffered a heart attack from having the extra weight,” the 41-year-old from Brunswick, Maryland told TODAY. “That was enough of a wake-up call that I needed to continue down the path that I was going rather than go back. Because the heart attack was the result of what I’ve pretty much done my whole life.”

A life of dieting

Morgan was overweight most of his life, but in high school and college he was in the marching band and that activity kept his weight a little bit lower.

“I’ve so-called dieted pretty much my whole life,” he said. “After college because I wasn’t active and got stuck in a sedentary lifestyle — I wasn’t exercising — the weight just kept coming on.”

At his heaviest, he weighed 330 pounds and that’s when he knew he had to take his health seriously. He started by tracking what he ate on the weight-loss app, Lose It!

“I would use the app to track every single thing that went in my mouth to the extent of having a food scale and weighing every single piece of food,” Morgan explained. “I would use the recipe builder on a portion of the Lose It! app to enter in all the ingredients for stuff I was cooking so that I could get an accurate count.”

He also started to move more, first walking.

“It was difficult because you’re going from a lifestyle where you’re really sitting on the couch, sitting at work, sitting at home — not really moving a whole lot — to trying to be as active as possible,” he said.

But then Morgan stared listening to podcasts about people using running to help with their weight loss and he wondered if he, too, could run.

“Being someone that was overweight my whole life I assumed that I would never ever be able to run,” Morgan said. “Running is actually something I do for entertainment. Now if I find I’m bored or have a stressful day — you name it — I go out for a run.”

He runs four to five times a week for an average of 20 miles. Since making his resolution, Morgan lost 155 pounds to weigh 175 pounds. He’s run several half-marathons, though they have all been virtual due to COVID-19. He’s looking forward to someday running a
