Pills found in Gorton's fish fillets are harmless

March 10, 2008

Gorton's says pills found inside a Pennsylvania family's fish fillets last month were harmless over-the-counter herbal supplements.

A company spokesman says the incident remains an isolated case and federal authorities continue their investigation.

Gorton's says the woman and her children sought medical attention but weren't sickened.

As a precaution, the company has recalled about 1,000 cases of its 6 Crispy Battered Fish Fillets.

The spokesman says the voluntary recall has harmed the company's business, but it's hard to say how much.

The product is 11.4 ounces and bears a UPC Code of No. 4440015770, date code of 7289G1 and best-if-used-by date of April 2009.

Gorton's has set up a consumer hot line for people who purchased the recalled fillets: (800) 896-9479.
