Regal King seafood dips recalled

Aug 20, 2007

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced the recall of Regal King brands ready-to-eat seafood dips because of possible Listeria contamination.

Ocean King Enterprises Inc. of Philadelphia said the products were distributed by retail stores in the Hatfield, Maine, Woodbridge, N.J., and Baltimore areas.

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

The FDA said the products were sold in bulk 5-pound containers to various distribution warehouses where the dips were sent to retail stores in clear plastic containers with a Regal King Gourmet Seafood label. All flavors have a red and white repack label and include Premium Krab Dip, Cajun Krab Dip, Shrimp Dip, and Smoked Salmon Dip.

Consumers with questions can contact Ocean King Enterprises Inc. at 215-495-0540.
