In Canada, Smoked Fish Recalled for Possible Botulism

In Canada, Orr’s Fine Meats and Deli in Ontario is recalling Smoked Fish because the product may permit the growth of the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. The store is located in Parry Sound. No illnesses have been reported to date.

Recall SignThe recalled product is Smoked White Fish in variable sizes (1 fillet). All codes are recalled. There is no UPC number. Also recalled is Smoked Lake Trout, in variable sizes (1 fillet). Again, all codes are recalled, and there is no UPC number.

If you purchased this product, do not eat it. Discard it in a closed container or return to the place of purchase for a refund.

The botulinum toxin will not cause food to smell off, and you cannot taste it or see it. But the toxin can cause nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, blurred or double vision, dry mouth, respiratory failure and paralysis. Just a tiny amount of the toxin can kill. The recall was triggered by CFIA inspections.
