California company recalls imported clams because of presence of PFAS

-

Crown Prince Inc. is recalling 3-ounce cans of Crown Prince Natural Smoked Baby Clams in Olive Oil because FDA testing found detectable levels of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

No illnesses had been reported as of the posting of the company’s recall notice.

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a diverse group of man-made chemicals used in a wide range of consumer and industrial products. PFAS do not easily break down and some types have been shown to accumulate in the environment and in human bodies. 

Exposure to certain types of PFAS have been linked to serious health effects, including but not limited to, increased cholesterol levels, increases in high-blood pressure, pre-eclampsia in pregnant women, developmental effects, decreases in immune response, changes in liver function, and increases in certain types of cancer.

Crown Prince decided to issue the recall after learning of the test results from Food and Drug Administration.

The recalled product was distributed nationwide to natural food stores, grocery stores and online retailers. Consumers can identify the product by looking for the following label information:

Crown Prince Natural Smoked Baby Clams in Olive Oil

Product of China

3 oz can

Can UPC – 0 73230 00853 5

If consumers have any of this product in their homes, they are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Crown Prince at 800-447-2524, or contact customer service at cservice@crownprince.com.
