Smoked salmon recalled in US over listeria potential
Miami, Florida, U.S.A.-based St. James Smokehouse is voluntary recalling 93 cases of smoked salmon due to the potential it is contaminated with listeria.
“The recall was the result of a routine sampling by the Washington State Department of Agriculture, which revealed that the finished product contained the bacteria,” the company said in a press release.
No illnesses have been reported to the FDA as a result of issues with the product.
The recalled product, St. James Smokehouse’s brand Scotch Reserve Scottish Smoked Salmon in four-ounce packages, was sold via distributors between February and June 2022.
The smoked salmon was distributed to stores in the U.S. states of Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Washington, Virginia, and Wisconsin. It was also distributed to Safeway stores in Washington state.
The recall applies only to lot# 123172 and UPC code 060022710356.
“The recall is specifically this lot only. No other products, brands or lots are associated with this recall,” St. James Smokehouse said.
If consumers have the recalled products, they should dispose of them immediately or return it to the store for a full refund, the company said.
