Packaged Salmon Recalled by New York Firm

Mamaroneck, NY (SafetyAlerts) - Porter Fine Foods Inc. is recalling cold smoked salmon trimmings because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The products, distributed in New York and Connecticut,  can be identified by a gold and silver, vacuum packed, plastic bag with plastic inserted labels with the name of La Maree, in quarter-pound, half-pound and 1-pound sizes.  The codes affected include "packed on Apr. 15", "packed on Apr. 16", and "packed on Apr. 17".

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. Listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness, and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weak immune systems--infants, the frail or elderly, and persons with chronic disease, with HIV infection, or taking chemotherapy.

Consumers should return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.  Questions can be directed to the company at (914)698-7700.
