What’s the problem?

March 17, 2011 - This week, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced that D&W Smoked Fish, Inc. of Queens, New York, will be recalling Haifa brand Schmaltz Herring with the Lot # 51 and Cold Smoked Sprats Lot #54 because these products were found to be uneviscerated. The sale of uneviscerated fish is prohibited in the state of New York because Clostridium Botulinum spores are more likely to be concentrated in the viscera than any other portion of the fish. Uneviscerated fish has been linked to outbreaks of botulism poisoning.

The Schmaltz Herring being recalled was distributed to the following food retailers in the NY area on or after February 27:

R&M Supermarket- 76-05 Main Street Flushing, NY

Botulism Food Poisoning Information

Botulism food poisoning is a rare but serious illness caused by Clostridium botulinum bacteria which causes paralysis that typically starts with the muscles of the face and then spreads towards the limbs. Symptoms include blurred vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, dry mouth, and muscle weakness. In foodborne botulism, symptoms generally begin 18 to 36 hours after consuming contaminated food, but they can occur as early as 6 hours or as late as 10 days after consumption.
