Grained Salmon Caviar Recalled In Canada For Botulism

Kananaskistrade is recalling Grained Salmon Caviar from the m marketplace in Canada because it may permit the growth of Clostridium botulinum bacteria. This bacteria produces a toxin that can be deadly even in very tiny amounts. A product with the same name, but marketed by AWERS, was recalled in the U.S. last week.

The recalled product is marked with Cyrillic characters only. The common name is Grained Salmon Caviar, sold in 95 gram tins. The UPC number on the product is 8 85202 00044 3, and the best before date marked on the tin is OCT 07 2020. This warning was updated on August 20, 2019 with more information: All units sold up to and including August 20, 2019 are recalled.

The recall was triggered by Canadian Food Inspection Agency test results. The government is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of more products. The CFIA is making sure that industry is removing this product from the marketplace so it is no longer available to consumers.

If you purchased this product, do not eat it. Throw it away in a sealed container, or take it back to the place of purchase for a refund. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue.

Symptoms of botulism food poisoning include facial paralysis, loss of facial expression, unreactive or fixed pupils, difficultly swallowing, drooping eyelids, blurred or double vision, difficulty speaking, slurred speech, and a change in the sound of the voice. As the toxin progresses in a symmetrical pattern through the body, people eventually lose the ability to breathe. There is an antidote to this toxin, but the sooner it is given the better the outcome.
