Gordons Fish RECALL…warning…

Gorton’s Inc. recalled about 1,000 cases of frozen fish in 10 states Friday after confirming a Pennsylvania customer found pills in her food.


Gorton’s said it ordered the recall as a precaution while a laboratory works to determine the nature of the pills. Those tests should be complete early next week.

“Obviously product alteration is a very serious matter,” said Jud Reis, vice president of marketing for the company, based in Gloucester, Massachusetts “We are conducting a full investigation into the source of the problem.”

Tracy Rowan of New Freedom, Pennsylvania, called police after she bit into one of the pills Sunday and found another on her daughter’s plate. On Friday, Reis said the material was some sort of pill, not compressed batter or bread crumbs.

Rowan described the pills as beige and aspirin size.

“It’s kind of frightening to not only find something in your mouth, a foreign object,” Rowan said Friday. “But then basically my heart stopped when my daughter said, ‘I have one in my mouth, too,’ and pulled it out.”

Rowan, her daughter and her 10 year old son were checked in an emergency room, then reported the incident to local police. They haven’t gotten sick, and Reis said the company knows of no other incidents.

Rowan said her daughter cooked the food and was adamant she did not alter the fillets.

The recall is for Gorton’s 6 Crispy Battered Fish Fillets, 11.4 ounces. The UPC Code is No. 44400157770, with a date code of 7289G1 and a “best if used by date of April 2009.”

The fish was sent to nine other states: Alabama, Delaware, California, Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.

Consumers who purchased the fish can call Gorton’s at 1~800~896~9479.

  1. hmmm very interesting . . .

    at least it’s only ‘aspirin’ I think . . .

    too bad it wasn’t like an antidepressant like prozac then I don’t think that people especially who suffer depression would be complaining about medicine pills in fish . . . anyway aside from the teasing.

    that’s gross. pills inside frozen fish. yuck.

  2. eyecatching and really an eyeopener.

    There is this kind of medicine in India too, given for asthma patients in Hyderabad.

  3. All these recalls makes anorexia seem safe.

  4. Grab the epi pen mom I am gonna cook some fish. Only aspirin is not a problem for most but some of us would be heading for the hospital.

  5. i had gordons fish filets for the first time! they were awesome!
