Another California-based company is recalling catfish from Vietnam because it was not presented for import reinspection, according to a press release by the United States Department of Agriculture Federal Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA).

Officials discovered the problem while they were performing a recall effectiveness review involving fish imported by a different company, the USDA release states.

The new recall, involving TV Food LLC of San Leandro, CA, affects almost 28,000 pounds of Yellow Hito catfish, according to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
