Smoked Trout, Salmon Spreads Recalled

Rushing Waters Fisheries of Palmyra is recalling about 225 pounds of smoked trout and smoked salmon spreads because the products may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

No illnesses have been reported from eating this product.

The recalled products are smoked trout spread labeled lot number 00694 with a sell-by date of Dec. 13, and smoked salmon spread labeled with lot 50012 with a sell-by date of Dec. 11. Lot numbers and dates are on the bottom of the container. Affected smoked fish spreads were sold in 8-ounce containers and 4.5-pound round plastic tubs in southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.

Consumers who have this product in their refrigerator should throw it or return it to the place where they bought it for a refund.

The contamination was discovered through routine testing conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.

Listeria can cause complications in pregnant women and have more serious effects on newborns, older adults and people with compromised immune systems.
