Miami, Florida -based St. James Smokehouse is recalling 93 cases of Scotch Reserve Scottish Smoked Salmon 4oz citing the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
The recall involves St. James Smokehouse brand Scotch Reserve Scottish Smoked Salmon, 4oz Packages bearing the lot# 123172 and UPC code 060022710356.
The affected product, a product of Scotland, was sold and distributed by St. James through distributors between February and June 2022. These were distributed to stores located in various stores in Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Washington State, Virginia and Wisconsin as well as Safeway Washington State stores.
The recall was initiated after a routine sampling by the Washington State Department of Agriculture revealed that the finished product contained the bacteria.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although 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.
However, the company did not receive any reports of illnesses related to the recalled product as of September 2.
Consumers are urged to dispose the affected product immediately or return it to the store for a full refund.
