Vita issues voluntary smoked salmon recall
An American food company is recalling nearly 2,000 pounds of smoked salmon over concerns of Listeria contamination.
Vita Food Products of Chicago is recalling 1,878 pounds of Vita Classic Premium Sliced Smoked Atlantic Salmon. The product has been sold in Hannaford grocery stores in New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire; H-E-B grocery stores in Texas; and Publix grocery stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina beginning on April 7, 2014.
The product is all part of a single lot. The company is issuing the recall after one package in the lot tested positive for the bacteria, which can make healthy adults sick, and can be potentially deadly for young children, the elderly or those with a compromised immune system. To date, no confirmed illnesses or complaints have been reported.
The packages are plastic film and vacuum sealed, black in color and bear the Vita logo centered at the bottom.
