FDA Warns Not to Eat Bantry Bay Mussel Products

Azaspiracid toxins May be Present in Certain Frozen Cooked Products

Certain frozen cooked mussel products made by Bantry Bay Seafoods, imported from Ireland, may be contaminated with azaspiracid toxins, a group of naturally occurring marine toxins known to cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps. The FDA is warning consumers not to eat these products.

In July, two people in Washington state became ill after eating the company's "Mussels in a Garlic Butter Sauce." Consumers should throw out the following Bantry Bay Seafood frozen cooked products with "Best before end" dates ranging from January 23, 2009, to November 15, 2009:

Mussels in a Garlic Butter Sauce

Mussels in White Wine Sauce

Mussels in Tomato and Garlic Sauce

The "Best before end" dates are displayed on the side of the box in the following format: MM:DD:YY. Products to be thrown out are marked with dates 01:23:09 through 11:15:09.

These products are sold frozen in 1 pound cardboard packages in stores throughout the United States.

I find it interesting the FDA warns us to NOT EAT this company's products yet the FDA allows this product into this country. I have to ask...why the hell do we need the FDA? It is their JOB to keep bad products out of our country but, instead, they allow these products in and then warn us AFTER someone gets sick.

Recently a friend of mine who is friends with a high level FDA official who told him not to eat any tilapia that comes into the country. Again...I have to ask...why is the FDA allowing it in? Also, there has been NO PUBLIC WARNING at all about Tilapia being dangerous to eat. Again, why do us taxpayers need to be paying the FDA's high salaries and office accommodations if they aren't doing their jobs!
