FDA Salmon Recall

July 12, 2008 at 4:42 am

This is a product found mainly at Food Lion.  Food Lion?  Isn’t that the grocer who was caught bleaching out spoiled chicken and selling it back in the early 90’s?  Maybe.  Anyway read the FDA Presser:

Recall — Firm Press Release

FDA posts press releases and other notices of recalls and market withdrawals from the firms involved as a service to consumers, the media, and other interested parties. FDA does not endorse either the product or the company.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — Federal Way, WA — July 9, 2008 — Salmolux Inc. of Federal Way, WA, is recalling lot # 01418 of its Wild Alaskan Smoked Salmon Nova Lox sold in 3 ounce packages due to the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recalled lot # 01418 of Wild Alaskan Smoked Salmon Nova Lox was distributed in Arizona, California, and Nevada, in Von’s retail outlets and to Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, West Virginia, and Virginia in Food Lion retail outlets.

The product comes in a 3 ounce, blue package marked with lot # 01418 on its rear white label bearing the name of the product, its ingredients, and an expiration date.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

After routine testing by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Listeria monocytogenes was found in 3 ounce packages of Wild Alaskan Smoked Salmon Nova Lox.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled 3 ounce packages bearing the lot # 01418 of the salmon are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (253) 874-2026 x214.
