Approximately 155,000 pounds of Siluriformes fish items — specifically Yellow Walking Fish — were recalled by importer Maxfield Seafood, from City of Industry, California.

The items were exported from Vietnam without proper inspection into the United States, according to a USDA release.

The products were produced at a Vietnamese establishment that did not have permission to export Siluriformes fish.

The frozen items were imported from March 2018 through January 2019.  The products have a two-year shelf life.

The problem was discovered on May 22, 2019, through Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) surveillance of imported products

The items were shipped nationally to retail locations.
