Delifish S.A. recalls product because of possible Listeria monocytogenes risk
No other products supplied by Delifish or
Marine Harvest USA are involved in this case
Potential Listeria-positive products have
been identified and we can confirm that Delifish S.A. has issued a voluntary
recall of cold smoked salmon products potentially containing Listeria monocytogenes placed on the
market in the USA produced from lots 249 through 291, manufactured between
September 5 2012 and October 17, 2012.
There have been no complaints or illnesses
reported. Listeria monocytogenes is
an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young
children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high
fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can affect immune
depressed individuals especially pregnant women can cause miscarriages and
Product was possibly distributed in the CA,
VA, OH, IL, FL, GA, TX, DE, NJ, NY, PA, and Puerto Rico and reached consumers
through retail stores. The voluntary recall is carried out as a precautionary
measure in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is based
on Listeria detection in a few of the
recalled batches. No other products supplied by Delifish or Marine Harvest USA
are involved in this case.
The US FDA has a zero tolerance for Listeria in products intended to be eaten
without prior heat treatment. In EU the tolerance limit for such products is up
to 100 bacteria/gram.
Listeria control thus has a very high attention in our company with strict
internal standards and routines. We therefore take this issue seriously and are
taking these measures to assure that products supplied by Delifish are healthy
and safe for our customers and consumers.
Consumers with questions may contact the
company at 1-877-479-8085 for more information including how to return the
product for a full refund.
