Listeria Test Prompts Seafood Recall

King & Prince Seafood Corp. of Brunswick, GA, is recalling nova-style cold smoked salmon and sable fish lox, salmon sushi fillets, and salmon trim distributed nationwide because the products may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The recall was initiated after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration collected finished products samples and environmental swab samples, and the samples were found positive for Listeria monocytogenes.   

There have been no reports of illness.

The products were distributed through brokers and foodservice distributors nationwide beginning on Oct. 4, 2011. While the products were originally distributed frozen, they may have been sold refrigerated at the retail level.

The recalled nova style, pre-sliced, cold smoked products, sushi fillets, and salmon trims are packed in vacuum pouches and include:

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.  Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
