The Fine Seafood Company recalls packs of smoked salmon
The Fine Seafood Company has recalled its 'Whiskey Cured and Oak Smoked' Smoked Salmon (70g, grey packs only) because of high levels of Listeria monocytogenes. This is a bacterium that can cause illness in certain groups of people, such as pregnant women, unborn and newborn babies, and anyone with reduced immunity, particularly the over-60s. The FSA has issued a Product Recall Information Notice.
The product being recalled is:
- Product name: Smoked Salmon (Whiskey Cured and Oak Smoked)
- Brand name: Fine Seafood Co
- Pack size: 70g (grey-coloured packs only)
- All date codes
The Fine Seafood Company has recalled the above product from customers. Point-of-sale notices will be displayed in stores, explaining why the product has been recalled.
No other Fine Seafood Company products are known to be affected.
If you have bought the above product, do not eat it but return to the store for a full refund.
About product recalls and withdrawals
If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a 'Food Alert for Action' is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.
