Fine Seafood recalls smoked salmon, mackerel
British Seafood company Fine Seafood Co. has recalled some of its packaged smoked salmon due to bacteriological contamination, and some mackerel packages with incorrect use-by dates, according to the U.K. Food Standards Agency.
The affected salmon products are 100-gram packages of smoked salmon, which the company said may be contaminated with listeria bacteria. The mackerel recall affects 240-gram packages of plan and peppered smoked mackerel. The recalls affect all batch and date codes for the specific products. No other Fine Seafood Co. products are known to be affected.
The listeria bacteria is known to cause food poisoning in certain groups of people, such as pregnant women, unborn and newborn babies, and anyone with reduced immunity, particularly the elderly.
Customers who bought one of the above products are encouraged to return it to the store for a full refund.
