FDA warns – Chillimami Sauce recalled by Aji Mori Sauce Corp., dba Sushi Koo, due to risk of Clostridium botulinum

Los Angeles, California-based Aji Mori Sauce Corp., doing business as Sushi Koo, has voluntarily recalled its Chillimami Sauce because it was not produced and distributed under the oversight of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Cannery Program. As such, FDA officials say that the product is more likely to be contaminated with the microbe Clostridium botulinum.

Initiated by the company on February 29, 2024, the recall covers bottles of Chillimami Sauce bearing the expiration date “October 1/2024.” The affected batch was distributed in 8474 W. 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90048, and also made available for purchase via www.ajimorisauce.com.

As can be referenced in the product image included in the March 6, 2024 FDA announcement, it is packaged in a clear, 250 ml Net Wt. plastic bottle bearing a black product label and a nozzle top.

While Aji Mori has not received any reports of illness connected to the issue to date, consumers who are in possession of the product should discard the item or return it to the point of purchase to receive a complete refund.

Further questions or concerns about the recall may be directed to the company via email at sales@ajimorisauce.com Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Pacific time.
