Blue Ribbon Smoked Fish Co. Recalls Salmon and Whitefish Salads

NEW YORK, NY (SafetyAlerts) - The Blue Ribbon Smoked Fish Co. of Brooklyn, New York has announced the recall of one batch of whitefish and baked salmon salads because the product may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.

The company is recalling 130 units of the whitefish salad and 120 units of the baked salmon salad with the batch number of # 1008/236.   The salads were sold in 8oz containers which were distributed in metropolitan New York and western New Jersey.

The recall only affects the batch number of #1008/236 and does not affect any other product.  A company spokesperson said there have been no reported illnesses.

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 are advised not to eat the products, and to return them to the place of purchase.
