VIS Seafoods Recalls Canned Salmon for Possible Botulism

Vis Seafoods of Washington is recalling all canned salmon and smoked salmon with any codes beginning with “OC” because they may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum bacteria. These bacteria can grow in anaerobic conditions and produce botulism toxin, a tasteless, odorless, and flavorless toxin that can cause serious illness and death. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the consumption of these products.
