A North American caviar supplier is recalling whitefish roe because it may permit botulism growth.

Dollard-Des-Ormeuax, Quebec, Canada-based Imperial Caviar and Seafood is recalling its Imperial Caviar & Seafood / VIP Caviar Club brands Golden Whitefish Roe  and Whitefish Roe because it may permit the growth of Clostridium botulinum (botulism).

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) identified the potential for botulism during a food safety investigation.

However, no illnesses have been reported from the lots of caviar in question.

“Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased,” the CFIA said in a statement.

In December, Imperial Caviar and Seafood also recalled Imperial Caviar & Seafood and VIP Caviar Club brand Trout Roe because the products may permit the growth of Clostridium botulinum.
