Slade Gorton & Co. Recalls Langostinos

Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that is capable of causing serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, the very young and the elderly is the culprit for the latest food recall.

The product retails in one pound, clear plastic package marked with UPC 0-73129-61672-8 on the top and with an expiration date of June 2009 and is distributed under the brand name of “ICYBAY”. The product also was distributed to wholesale accounts, also under the “ICYBAY” brand, in five pound clear plastic packages containing either 70-90 count, 90-125 count or 120-150 count. This recall involves production dates of July 18, 2007 through August 13, 2007 and/or Julian dates of 199 through 232.
