BROCKTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Fuji Food Products, Inc. issued a voluntary recall of several of their ready-to-eat sushi products because they may potentially be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
An FDA inspection of the company's facility in Brockton, Massachusetts revealed the possible contamination.
The sushi products are sold in over 30 states at 7 Eleven, Walgreens, Food Lion, Hannaford, Trader Joe’s, Giant Eagle Supermarkets, Porkys, Bozzutos, Supreme Lobster and Superior Foods.
Anyone who purchased the products, which are packed in plastic trays with clear lids and sold under the Okami and Trader Joe's brands, should throw them away immediately.

It's the first-ever recall for the company.
"As responsible processors of safe, fresh food for nearly 30 years, we are addressing this problem vigorously and we apologize to those who are affected by it," Fuji Food Products CEO Farrell Hirsch said in a release. "We will restart operation only after we have eliminated the cause and the FDA certifies that our facility is once again free of possible contamination."
