What’s the Problem?
The recalled “Veladis herring in oil with Italian spices” was sold at select international retail stores in the State of Washington, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
“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,” FDA said. “Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.”
The recalled herring fish comes in a 17.64 ounce (500 gram) plastic package and is stamped with the expiration date of 08/08/2021 and UPC No. 4823097903896.
About 400 units were sold in November and December 2020, FDA said. All affected product has been removed from sale.
If you purchased any herring fish that is affected by this recall, you should not eat it, and either discard it or return it to the point of purchase for a refund.
Anyone concerned about a potential food poisoning illness should contact their healthcare provider immediately.
This recall began on December 24, 2020.
