Alaskan Smoked Silver Salmon in Jars and Cans Recalled Due to Risk of Botulism

On February 15, 2019, Smoked Alaska Seafoods, Inc. recalled all jars and cans of Smoked Silver Salmon because it has the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium which can cause life-threatening illness or death.

Clostridium botulinum is an organism which can cause botulism, a potentially fatal form of food poisoning. Symptoms include general weakness, muscle weakness, dizziness, double-vision, abdominal tension, constipation, trouble with speaking or swallowing and difficulty in breathing. People experiencing these symptoms should seek immediate medical attention. It can lead to life-threatening paralysis of breathing muscles requiring support with a breathing machine (ventilator) and intensive care.

Recalled Smoked Silver Salmon was sold to distributors throughout the state of Alaska primarily in gift stores in the Anchorage and Fairbanks area. It is packaged in 6.5 oz. containers and can be identified by the production code of AL81111133. 

Consumers should destroy the product, or return it to the place where purchased for a refund or contact Smoked Alaska Seafoods, Inc. for a refund or replacement.
