This is the Tilapia in my freezer I bought at PriceSmart. I don’t have the price ticket to know the lot number and have no recall of when I purchased it, to know if it is part of the recalled product.

Q COSTA RICA NEWS – The PriceSmart chain in Costa Rica warned its members Tuesday afternoon, through its Facebook page, about the recall of a 21-ton batch of Tilapia due to the detection of high levels of the antibiotic, Sulfaiazine.

Marco Torres, spokesperson for PriceSmart, explained that the consumption of this batch of Tilapia does not pose a health risk, but the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG) asked them to recall the product.
