Listeria fears trigger Scotch Reserve Scottish Smoke Salmon recall
St. James Smokehouse has voluntarily recalled its Scotch Reserve Scottish Smoked Salmon because it may be contaminated with listeria.
The FDA says 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.”
It says healthy people may suffer from a high fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
It could also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The FDA recommends disposing the product if it is in your home or returning it for a refund. It says there have been no reported illnesses associated with the recall, as of Sept. 2.
The issue was found due to a routine sampling by the Washington State Department of Agriculture.
