On November 23, 2011, the FDA announced that King & Prince Seafood of Brunswick, Georgia, was voluntarily recalling a number of products due to the “potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.” The recalled products are: Nova Style Cold Smoked Salmon and Sable Fish Lox, Salmon Sushi Fillets, and Salmon Trim.
The FDA syas that Listeria:
can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
At this time, there are not reports of illnesses related to the recalled products.
The products were distributed nationwide beginning on October 4. According to the FDA, “All Nova Style, pre-sliced, cold smoked products, sushi fillets, and salmon trims are packed in vacuum pouches and distributed frozen.”
