    Exclamation Pill-Laced Fillets Cause Gorton's Fish Recall - Yes, GORTON'S!!

    OK, we need a forum for threads that "make you sick to your stomach and/or freak you out". :eek:

    http://www.10news.com/health/15454565/detail.html


    On Friday, Jud Reis, vice president of marketing for the company, based in Gloucester, Mass., said the material was some sort of pill, not compressed batter or bread crumbs.

    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 800-896-9479.

    I almost bought some of these filets at Walmart, but then decided not to since the fish might be from China. Glad I didn't.

    I had to run check the two boxes in my fridge!

    Neither was included in the recall, but one did have a "best by" date of Dec. 2007.

    So I'm more likely to make my family sick than anyone else!

    These are such a popular thing to feed children. We don't buy them because I think you get more breading/batter than fish. But I wonder how many children eat these and would never realize that hard chunk was a pill? Hopefully it's nothing....

    do we know what kind of pills these were yet? I mean was it anything good that would be worth running out and buying some Gorton's?

    I'm sorry I hadn't seen this thread. I'd started one under Trust The Gorton's Fisherman". No news about what kind of pills yet. I haven't found anything.

    This may help:

    Results of the tests are expected early next week.
    A New Freedom, Pa., woman said she had bitten into one of the pills and her 9-year-old daughter found another pill in the fish, the wire service said. Neither person got sick, and both were checked out at a local hospital. The pills were described as beige and about the size of an aspirin.

    Look at the bright side.We've doubled the chances that we will get the word out to people to stay away from fish sticks.
