    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

    :sick:
    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! :rolleyes:

    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....

    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.

    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.

    This is the worst time of the year for this to happen. So many are only eating fish on Friday's from now until Easter, and that started in early February.

    I Googled "beige pill that looks like an aspirin" and ecstacy fits the description to a tee.

    Best wishes,
