Processing Problem Prompts Canned Seafood Recall

Quinault Tribal Enterprise of Taholah, WA is recalling canned salmon, smoked and non-smoked; tuna, smoked and non-smoked; smoked sturgeon; minced razor clams; smoked razor clams; and smoked steelhead because the seafood was not adequately processed and may pose a risk for Botulism.

Canned seafood that is not processed following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s low-acid canned food regulations may be contaminated with harmful microorganisms that can cause serious and possibly life-threatening illness. Consumers are warned not to eat these products, even if they do not look or smell spoiled. This issue was found during FDA inspection at Quinault Tribal Enterprises, which is cooperating with FDA in conducting the recall.

No illnesses have been reported.

The recalled products were packaged in metal cans in various sizes (5 oz., 6 oz., 6.5 oz., and 7 oz.) and labeled under the Quinault Pride or Quinault Tribal Enterprises brand. They were distributed nationwide through distributors and retail stores.

All manufacturing codes are subject to the recall.

Consumers who have purchased Quinault Pride Brand canned seafood are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers may contact the company at 1-800-982-8650 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Pacific Time.
