Second Smoked Salmon Recall In BC

No illnesses have been reported, but the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for the second time in less than a month issued a warning this week about two smoked salmon products sold in British Columbia.

Vancouver-based Classic Smokehouse Inc. is recalling the salmon for possible Listeria contamination.

The manufacturer’s recall is for 200g packages of Smoked Sockeye Cream Cheese Log packed between Oct. 16 and Nov. 12, 2009 with UPC number CF831CS; and Maple Salmon Nuggets sold at various weights.

The products are sold in the Vancouver, Burnaby, and West Vancouver areas including two Choices Markets and three Whole Foods stores.  Regent Fish Ldt distributed the salmon as late as Nov. 14th.

As recently as Oct. 22, Classic Smokehouse Inc. recalled its Wild Sockeye Lox Trim, also over Listeria fears.   Testing prompted by the first recall may have led to the second one.

Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled. Eating such contaminated may cause the foodborne illness listeriosis.   It can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness, and nausea.
