Smoked Fish Recall: Banner Smoked Fish Recall Salmon, Lox, Trout, & Extra

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced a recall of smoked fish from Banner Smoked Fish.

The Brooklyn-based company has recalled 42 products that are sold through retail stores and online sales in 17 states. The recall was initiated because the fish may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. “It was found that the products were processed under inviolable conditions,” says the recall. The contamination was determined by a routine inspection by the FDA.

The 42 products include smoked salmon, salmon, trout, whitefish and other fish products. For a full list of these products, along with pictures of the labels, see the FDA’s recall page. These products were distributed in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Listeria can cause fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea in healthy adults. More serious illnesses can occur in children, the frail or the elderly, according to the recall.

No illnesses were reported in connection with the recalled products. However, it is recommended for anyone who owns them to throw them in the bin or return them to the point of sale for a refund.
