LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — There was a big recall affecting Fuji Foods Tuesday. Ready-to-eat sushi, salads and spring rolls sold by major retailers across much of the U.S. are being recalled due to possible listeria contamination. 

The company released the news in a statement posted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Fuji Foods said the problem was discovered during a routine inspection by the FDA of a company facility in Brockton, Massachusetts.

The company released the following statement:

“As responsible processors of safe, fresh food for nearly 30 years, we are addressing this problem vigorously, and we apologize to those who are affected by it,” Fuji Food Products CEO Farrell Hirsch said in a statement.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

According to CBS News, the recalled products are sold in 31 states and Washington, D.C., at retailers and distributors including Trader Joe’s, 7-Eleven, Walgreens, Food Lion, Hannaford, Giant Eagle, Porky Products, Bozzuto’s, Supreme Lobster and Superior Foods.
