Publix Recalls Frozen Tempura Shrimp

Lakeland-based Publix supermarkets has issued a voluntary recall for 11oz packets of frozen

shrimp tempura. Actually, the shrimp is OK. It's the dipping sauce packets, which that contain soy but aren't labeled as such, that sparked the recall.

No illnesses have been reported, according to a Publix press release.

Customers with additional questions can call the company's customer care center at 1-800-242-1227 or visit Publix's website at

Customers also can contact the U.S. Food and Drug Administration at 1-888-SAFEFOOD (1-888-723-3366).

Publix has recalled nearly half a dozen products in 2012. Most recently it was

hearts of Romaine, distributed by California-based Ready Pac, over concerns about Listeria monocytogenes, the bacteria that causes Listeriosis.

Other recalls included sub sandwiches with onion, Publix brand beef stew mix, seven-ounce Malta cans from a variety of producers including Publix, Goya and Hatuey, and frozen desserts produced by Arctic Zero Inc.
