Seng Ong Wholesale Recalling Uneviscerated Dried Fish

Seng Ong Wholesale, Inc. of St. Paul, Minnesota is recalling dried mackerel and dried round scad after the Minnesota Department of Agriculture discovered the product was not properly eviscerated. Gills were still present in the finished product.

This product can be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum spores, which can cause botulism, a very serious and possibly fatal foodborne illness. Those spores are more likely to be concentrated in the viscera than any other part of the fish.

Symptoms of botulism poisoning include blurred or double vision, poor reflexes, general weakness, difficulty swallowing, and respiratory paralysis. Anyone experiencing these symptoms should immediately seek medical attention.
