ATLANTA– Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Tommy Irvin is warning Georgians that several brands of smoked salmon sold in the state are being recalled because they may possibly be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a species of bacteria that can potentially cause illness.
A Florida company is recalling SMOKED SALMON SKINLESS SLICED SIDES sold under the brand names: Imperial Salmon House, Superior brand Norwegian Cure and Golden Eagle Smoked Salmon. The affected packages were produced on June 13, 2005, and have a shelf life of three to four months if maintained in an un-opened frozen state and four days if kept refrigerated. They are sold in individual two to four pound packages labeled as: "Processed by Hickory House, Hialeah, FL33016", "21555, Product of the USA" and "keep frozen until ready to use." The products were sold in Florida, Georgia, New York and Virginia.
The recall comes after routine testing by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.
“I have instructed our food safety inspectors to check all grocery stores and food warehouses for the recalled products. If any are found, we will place them under a ‘Withhold From Sale’ order,” said Commissioner Irvin. “Consumers who have purchased any of the recalled products should dispose of them or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.”
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially serious disease. The most common manifestation of listeriosis is meningitis, which has symptoms of high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections to infants, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems such as persons with chronic disease, AIDS or HIV infection or taking chemotherapy for cancer.
