Salisbury, Maryland - Handy Seafood Incorporated (“Handy”) is voluntarily recalling approximately 71 cases of Blue Crab Mini Crab Cakes, as identified on Attachment A. The voluntary recall is limited to this product which was distributed to Whole Foods stores in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut, and Rhode Island between November 11, 2016 and November 23, 2016. Whole Foods has confirmed that less than 60 individual trays of the product have been sold to the public.
