Smelly fish aren’t the only thing to worry about rotting right now, as the FDA announced a voluntary tartar sauce recall from House-Autry Mills, Inc. The 200-year old company produces a variety of breadings, sauces, marinades, and other food products available in grocery stores across the country.
One of House-Autry Mills’ co-manufacturers discovered that bottles from a batch of tartar sauce have prematurely spoiled, rendering them a potential health risk. It’s uncertain what specific factors caused spoilage, but a pre-emptive recall has been issued to reduce risk for customers. So far, no illnesses have been reported.
The affected products are 9oz bottles and were sent to suppliers in South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Florida and Ohio between December 15th 2020 and January 18th 2021. Given the recent date of distribution and long shelf life of this type of product, it’s possible they may still be on shelves, so proceed with caution.
Affected products can be identified by their Best Before date. According to the official release, the details are:
