Reason For Recall As of May 1, Korean shellfish imports have been blocked by the United States because Korean waters may have been polluted. FDA said that all Korean certified shippers of molluscan shellfish were removed from the Interstate Certified Shellfish Shippers List. Therefore, FDA said that food distributors, retailers and food service operators should "remove from sale or service, all fresh, frozen and processed Korean molluscan shellfish and any product subsequently made with them." Out of an abundance of caution, Mitsui Foods is requesting the return of all Korean oyster product that you may have on hand.
