FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - May 29, 2013 - WIN LUCK TRADING INC. of Bayonne, NJ, is recalling all lots of Lam Sheng Kee’s 7 ounce packages of Shrimp Balls, Lobster Balls, Fish Package Eggs and Fresh Fish Cakes because they may contain undeclared eggs. People who have allergies to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled Lam Sheng Kee’s Shrimp Balls, Lobster Balls, Fish Package Eggs and Fresh Fish Cakes were distributed in retail stores in New York and West Virginia during January 2013 to March 2013.
The products come in 7 ounce, printed plastic packages with the following codes:
Shrimp Balls - UPC 6949682804640
Lobster Balls - UPC 6949682804602
Fresh Fish Cakes - UPC 6949682804589
Fish Package Eggs - UPC 6949682804633
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the egg-containing product was distributed in packages that did not reveal the presence of eggs. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by lack of translation of scientific name to common name of Albumin.
Consumers who have purchased Lam Sheng Kee’s 7 ounce packages of Shrimp Balls, Lobster Balls, Fish Package Eggs and Fresh Fish Cakes are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 201-332-8878. (Monday to Friday, 10AM-5PM, Eastern Time Zone).
