Price Chopper and Market 32 Supermarkets are issuing a voluntary manufacturer recall by AFC Sushi on all varieties of packaged sushi made with tuna, sold from the prepared foods case in the deli department at its Price Chopper and Market 32 stores.

The manufacturer is recalling these products due to possible listeria contamination of the tuna, said a press release from the company.

(1879 Altamont Avenue, Rotterdam, NY) but, as a precaution, the sushi made with tuna manufactured by AFC Sushi has been recalled from all of the chain’s stores, the company said.

Customers who have an affected product may return it to their local Price Chopper/Market 32 for a full refund.
