Listeria Concerns Prompt Herring Recall

A New York firm is recalling its herring fillets because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Prime Food USA of Brooklyn issued a voluntary recall of its Latis brand Herring Fillet “Antalja” in Oil and its Latis brand Herring Fillet in Oil with Spices Tuesday after routine sampling by the New York State Department of Agriculture detected Listeria in a sample of the company’s product.

This is the second recall issued by Prime USA, which imports its products from Latvia, in a month.

In mid-April, the company recalled two other types of herring fillet and as well as salmon fillet slices.

The Latis brand Herring Fillet “Antalja” in Oil subject to the recall is packaged in 7 oz (200 grams) plastic containers marked with a best-by date of “Best before (L): 11.02.2014,” and can also be identified by UPC 4 751004 071607. The Latis brand Herring Fillet in Oil with Spices is packaged in 7 oz (200 grams) plastic containers and marked with a best-by date of “Best before (L): 11.02.2014.” The UPC on this product is 4 751004 079429.

The herring fillets were distributed in New York State.

No illnesses have been connected to the recalled products to date.
