Smoked Rainbow Trout Products Recalled in Canada for Possible Botulism

Tarini Brothers Meat and Fish Market is recalling some Smoked Rainbow Trout products in Canada because they permit the growth of Clostridium botulinum bacteria. That bacteria produces the botulism toxin. These product were sold from the Tarini Brothers Meat and Fish Market at 1055 Lorne Street in Sudbury, Ontario. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recalled products are all packed on dates up to and including 15.02.18. The package sizes of these products are variable. They include Smoked Rainbow Trout with a UPC number that starts with 020270; Cajun Smkd Rainbow Trout with a UPC number that starts with 020271; LP (lemon pepper) Smkd Rainbow Trout with a UPC number that starts with 020272; and Dill Smkd Rainbow Trout with a UPC number that starts with 020273.

If you purchased any of these products, do not eat them. Discard in a sealed package or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Food that is contaminated with the botulism toxin will not look, smell, or taste spoiled and it will have the same texture. But a tiny amount of this toxin can kill an adult person.

Symptoms of botulism food poisoning start at the top of the body and progress downward in a parallel fashion. Early symptoms include loss of facial expression, facial paralysis, dropping eyelids, difficulty swallowing, blurred or double vision, slurred speech, and a change in the sound of the voice. The paralysis will eventually affect the lungs. Botulism does not cause a fever. In severe cases, people will die. If you or anyone you know is experiencing these symptoms, they must see a doctor immediately.
