The FDA has ordered Mill Stream Co. to destroy cold smoked salmon product from its facility in Hancock, Maine. The order came in response to a finding of listeria monocytogenes in the facility and equipment.
According to the FDA:
FDA investigators ordered an administrative detention of the firm’s cold-smoked salmon product, a ready-to-eat food, during an inspection in December 2011. Once the food was detained, Mill Stream Corp. agreed to voluntarily destroy the cold-smoked salmon, under FDA supervision.
No illnesses have been reported to date from Mill Stream Corp. products.
