SEATTLE (AP) — Ocean Beauty Seafoods has announced a precautionary recall of two cold-smoked salmon products distributed in 12 states because of possible Listeria contamination.
The products are the 3-ounce Nathan's Brand Cold Smoked Atlantic Salmon and the 4-ounce Lascco Cold Smoked Nova Atlantic Salmon. The products were distributed to retailers and distribution centers in Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, Texas, Colorado, Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey and New York.
The Lascco salmon has a universal product code, or UPC, of 0 72840 01751 7. The Nathan's salmon has a UPC of 0 73030 80368 2.
No illnesses have been reported. Listeria can lead to severe illness for women who are pregnant or people who have a weakened immune system.
Ocean Beauty says internal testing by the company revealed the presence of Listeria in samples of the specific package codes noted above.
