Salmon fillet product recalled
Due to risk of Listeria infection, Euphoria Fancy Food is recalling its ‘CAPTAIN K’ salmon product.
Euphoria Fancy Food Inc of Brooklyn, New York, is recalling its 7.05 oz packages of ‘CAPITAN K’ salmon slightly salted pieces, because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy persons may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhoea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The contamination in the salmon was discovered after sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Market Food Inspectors., with subsequent analysis by Food Laboratory personnel revealing the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.
The recalled ‘CAPITAN K’ salmon slightly salted pieces were distributed in the US in retail stores and through mail orders nationwide. The product comes in 7.05 oz, vacuum package marked with container code of 070519 and a ‘best by date’ of 01/30/2020. The product UPC code is 607059000362.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this product.
