West Front Andrew Corporation Issues Alert on
Listeria in Sliced/Smoked Nova Salmon
West Front Andrew Corp, 1061 2nd Ave, NY 10022 is recalling SLICED / SMOKED
NOVA SALMON due to Listeria contamination.
Listeria is a common organism found in nature. It can cause serious
complications for pregnant women, such as stillbirth. Other problems can
manifest in people with compromised immune systems. Listeria can also cause
serious flu-like symptoms in healthy individuals.
The problem was discovered after routine sampling by New York State
Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors found the product to
be positive for Listeria monocytogenes.
WEST FRONT ANDREW CORP. has voluntarily closed its deli department until
they, and Department officials, determine the source of the problem. The
sliced / smoked Nova Salmon was sold in the New York City area only.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
Consumers who have purchased SLICED / SMOKED NOVA SALMON should not consume
it, but should return it to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions
may contact the company at (212) 371-9944.
