Trader Joe's fish recalled due to allergen risk, FDA says
Over 4,000 pounds of Trader Joe's fish has been recalled due to an allergen risk, the FDA says.

Orca Bay Foods is recalling more than 350 cases of Trader Joe's brand Gluten Free Battered Halibut because the fish were packaged without listing milk or wheat as allergens.

So far, there have been no illnesses reported, according to CNN.

"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," Seattle-based Orca Bay said in an announcement via the Food and Drug Administration.
