What’s the problem?
March 31, 2011 – This week, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced that the Smokehouse LLC of Mamaroneck, New York is currently recalling PORTIER FINE FOODS Norwegian Smoked Salmon of various size packages including 4 oz., 8 oz., 16 oz. and random weight sizes, Batch Code 066, due to potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. The product was labeled with an “EXPIRES ON” date of 3/21/11. Since the product may be stored frozen, the likelihood exists that the affected code may still be available in consumers’ homes. The recalled salmon was distributed and sold on March 7, 2011 to retailers in NY, NJ, CT.
Listeria Food Poisoning (Listeriosis)
Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that causes a serious infection called listeriosis. Symptoms of listeriosis include (but are not limited to):
- muscle aches
- stiff neck
- loss of balance
Listeriosis infections during pregnancy can cause premature delivery, miscarriage, stillbirth, or serious health problems for the newborn. Those at increased risk for infection can get listeriosis after eating food contaminated with even a few bacteria. If you’d like to learn more about listeria infection, please visit the Mayo Clinic website for more information.
