Seafood Could Contain Listeria
October 7, 2005
BOSTON — About 40,000 pounds of red king crab legs and claws sold by Orca Bay Foods of Renton, Wash., have been recalled.
The company said they may be contaminated with listeria. No illnesses have been reported.
The frozen crab legs were distributed through food service distributors in several states, including Massachusetts.
Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems.
It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as fever, headaches, and other short-term symptoms in healthy people.
The red king crab legs can be returned for a refund.
