Vita Food Products, Inc Recalls Smoked Salmon

Chicago, IL. (SafetyAlerts) - Vita Food Products, Inc. announced this weekend the recall of some of its "Vita Premium Sliced Smoked Salmon" produced at its Chicago plant.  Routine tests conducted by the New York Department of Agriculture found some packages to have insufficient water phase salt levels.

According to Kenneth Molfese, Vita Foods Spokesman, insufficient water phase salt level could possibly lead to the development of foodborne botulism.

Although testing for insufficient levels at the Chicago plant has turned up negative results, Vita Foods has decided to voluntarily initiate this recall stating that the health and safety of their customers is the first priority in these situations.

The "Vita Premium Sliced Smoked Salmon" is vacuum packed and is contained in a 12 oz. box with a code of 90629 and a sell by date of 080399 only and was distributed along the United States east coast.

Customers should return the recalled packages to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions about the recall may phone Kenneth Molfese, toll-free at 1-800-989-8482, Monday through Friday between 8:00am and 5:00pm CDT.
