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.

 

Ocean Beauty Seafoods LLC Recalls “Nathan’s Brand Cold Smoked Atlantic Salmon 3 oz” and “LASCCO Cold Smoked Atlantic Salmon 4 oz”

Consumer:
206-285-6800
 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - December 14, 2012 - Ocean Beauty Seafoods LLC is voluntarily recalling 371 cases of ready-to-eat cold smoked salmon products because of possible contamination by Listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled products, “Nathan’s Brand 3oz Cold Smoked Atlantic Salmon” (Product of Chile) and “LASCCO Cold Smoked Nova Atlantic Salmon 4 oz” (Product of Chile) were distributed to various retailers and distribution centers in WA, OR, CA, AZ, TX, CO, MA, NH, CT, RI, NJ, and NY from 11/20/2012 through 12/12/2012.

Potentially affected product is limited to packages bearing the following codes:

BRANDITEMUPCPACK CODEVOLUME
Lascco4 oz Nova Salmon0 72840 01751 728596 cases
Nathan's3oz Nova Salmon0 73030 80368 2285275 cases

Ocean Beauty Seafoods has notified the retailers and distributors who may have received the affected product listed above, and is taking this action as a precautionary measure in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. No other Ocean Beauty products are included in this action. There have been no complaints or illnesses reported in association with this recall.

The potential for contamination was noted after internal testing by the company revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in samples of the specific code dates identified above.  Nathan’s and Lascco brand products that do not have the specific package code identified above are not affected.

Consumers can identify if they have purchased an impacted product by looking at the package code date located in the back, top left corner of the package. Consumers who have affected product with the package codes identified above should not eat the product. Consumers should discard any open packages of affected product and should return unopened packages to the place of purchase for a refund.

Listeria monocytogenes is 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. Anyone who is concerned about a possible health problem or illness should contact a healthcare provider immediately.

Hoser, Good Morning,
 
I see that the smoked salmon on Recall is USA designation of origin.
 
Would this raise Scottish, Nova Scotia and Norwegian smoked salmon prices, and would this incident increase Canadian and European importing ?
 
Smoked salmon is a very big Christmas Eve and New Year´s product here in the Spain.
 
Thanks for informative post.
Margi.
