Yummy Smoked Lake Trout Recalled After Botulism Illness in Canada

Yummy Market is recalling Yummy Market brand Smoked Lake Trout w/Pepper with Cracked Black Pepper for possible Clostridium botulinum contamination. It was sold from the Yummy Market store at 1390 Major Mackenize Drive West in Maple, Ontario. The recall was triggered by a consumer complaint.

There has been one illness reported that may be associated with the consumption of this product. If you purchased it, do not eat it. Throw it away in a sealed package, or take it back to the place of purchase for a refund. Wash your hands well with soap and water after handling this product. You can see a picture of the recalled product at the CFIA website.

Food contaminated with this toxin will not change the look, taste, smell, or texture of food. The bacteria that produces the toxin grows in anaerobic environments.

Fish can be a source of the botulism toxin because the Clostridium botulinum bacteria can be present in the viscera. Uneviscerated fish are recalled for this reason. The bacteria can also produce the botulinum toxin in low acid canned foods and other foods that are not properly processed and packaged in airtight containers.

The symptoms of botulism food poisoning include facial paralysis, loss of facial expression, unreactive fixed pupils, difficulty swallowing, drooping eyelids, blurred or double vision, difficulty speaking, slurred speech, and a change in the sound of voice. The paralysis gradually descends through the body, resulting in difficulty breathing. If anyone is experiencing these symptoms they need to see a doctor immediately.
