Food Connection II Recalls Seafood Salad Due to Possible Health Risk

(SafetyAlerts) - Food Connection II, 79-15 Eliot Avenue, Middle Village, Flushing, NY 11379 today urged consumers not to consume store-made seafood salad sold from the deli due to the potential of it being contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Food Connection II is voluntarily recalling the products, which were sold in their Middle Village store.

The problem was discovered as a result of routine sampling August 13th by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets food inspectors. The firm has voluntarily closed their deli department while they and the department investigate the problem.

Listeria is a common organism found in nature. It can cause serious complications for pregnant women, including stillbirth. Other problems can manifest in people with compromised immune systems and the elderly. Listeria can also cause serious flu-like symptoms in healthy individuals.

No illnesses have been reported to date with this problem.

Consumers who have purchased these products should discard them. Consumers with questions may contact Bill Fani at Food Connection II at 718-426-0271.
