Lobster and Crab Recalled For Possible Botulism in Canada

Denis Losier is recalling Lobster and Crab, both packed in brine, that were sold in jars with no labels, because they may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum bacteria that can produce the deadly botulinum toxin. These products were sold in New Brunswick and Quebec in Canada.

The Lobster in brine and Crab in brine were sold in jars with no labels with no brand name. The recalled products are Lobster in brine sold in 250 ml or 500 ml Mason jars with no UPC number. All units sold up to and including November 13, 2019 are recalled. They were sold at Marché G & D, at 1006 Saint-Laurent Blvd., in Montréal, Quebec and distributed in New Brunswick by Denis Losier, Tracadie in New Brunswick.

The recalled Crab in brine also has no brand name and no UPC number. It was also sold 250 ml or 500 ml mason jars. All units sold up to and including November 13, 2019 are recalled. They were also sold at Marché G & D, at 1006 Saint-Laurent Blvd., Montréal, Quebec and distributed in New Brunswick by Denis Losier, Tracadie in New Brunswick. The botulism toxin does not change the taste, appearance, smell, or texture of food.

If you purchased either of these items, do not eat them. Even a tiny taste from a product contaminated with the toxin can be deadly. Heat does destroy the toxin, but you shouldn’t take the chance. You can return the product to the place of purchase for a refund, or throw it away in a sealed container. The recall was triggered by government test results; more products may be recalled in this situation.

Symptoms of botulism food poisoning include facial paralysis, loss of expression, unreactive or fixed pupils, difficulty speaking, and a change in the sound of the voice. Eventually, the paralysis moves downward through the body and affects breathing. An antidote is available but it is typically given in a hospital by doctors.
