MONROVIA, Calif. (NewsNation Now) — A brand of frozen, gluten-free battered fish sold at Trader Joe’s locations in several states is being recalled by supplier Orca Bay Foods due to allergens not declared on the label.
The recall of Trader Joe’s brand “Battered Halibut Gluten Free” was initiated by the supplier after it was discovered the packaging did not disclose the presence of wheat and milk allergens.
