King Soopers, City Market, Ralph’s Pull Smoked Salmon

A Listeria recall has prompted King Soopers, City Market and Ralph’s stores, which are all owned  by The Kroger Co. of Cincinnati, of  to pull smoked salmon from store shelves. Specifically, the stores have removed 4 oz packages of  LASCCO Cold Smoked Nova Atlantic Salmon (Product of Chile) with UPC # 0 72840 01751 7.

The product is one of two being recalled by Ocean Beauty Seafoods LLC  which recalled 371 cases of ready-to-eat cold smoked salmon product with the pack code 285 on December 14.  (The other product recalled were 3 oz packages of Nathan’s Brand Cold Smoked Atlantic Salmon (Product of Chile)  with UPC 0 73030 80368 2.) The recalled products were sent to retail stores and distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado,  Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, and Washington  from November 20, 2012 to December 12, 2012.  King Soopers  and City Market operate stores in Colorado, Ralph’s operates stores in Southern California. No illnesses have been reported in association with this recall. However, Listeria can cause serious, sometimes fatal illness.

Once ingested,  Listeria is slow to incubate. It can take up to two months for the flu-like symptoms of a Listeria infection, called listeriosis, to develop. Symptoms include fever, stiff neck, headache, muscle aches, upset stomach and diarrhea. These infections almost always require hospitalization. Pregnant women are among those most at risk as listeriosis can cause miscarriage, stillbirth or birth defects.

Consumers who have purchased smoked salmon products included in this recall should not eat it. Anyone who ate the recalled product and is experiencing symptoms should contact a health care provider.
