Springfield Smoked Salmon Recalled for Possible Listeria Monocytogenes Contamination

Springfield Smoked Fish of Massachusetts is recalling Presliced Nova Smoked Salmon because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. There have been no reports of illness associated with this issue to date.

This smoked salmon is packaged in 1 pound, clear plastic packages. The lot number is 42173 printed on the back of the package, and the expiration date is 12/22/17. The UPC number on the product isĀ 811907018018. It was distributed to customers in Rhode Island and Connecticut through retail stores. The issue was identified after FDA product sampling found the pathogenic bacteria in the product. The company has suspended production while the FDA and company investigate this problem.

If you bought this product, do not eat it. Throw it away in a sealed container in a secure garbage can, or take it back to the store where you bought it for a full refund.

Then wash out your refrigerator or freezer, or wherever you stored the salmon, with a mild bleach solution to kill any remaining bacteria. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures, and freezing doesn’t kill it. Wash your hands well with soap and water after handling this product.

If you ate this product, you should monitor yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis, the illness caused by this bacteria, for the next 70 days. Those symptoms include high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only be mildly ill with symptoms similar to the flu if they contract this illness, but listeriosis can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, premature labor, and infection in the newborn baby. If you do get sick, see your doctor.
