These 42 Seafood Products Were Just Recalled in 17 States

A heads-up for bagel lovers, as the FDA found "unsanitary condition" at a Brooklyn smoked fish plant.

If you've got a weekend bagel craving, beware: A routine inspection by the Food and Drug Administration has led to the discovery of "unsanitary condition" in a food plant that processed 42 varieties of smoked fish products which happen to be popular accompaniments to some beloved breakfast foods.

Announcement of the recall occurred on Wednesday of this week, wherein the FDA published an advisory that Banner Smoked Fish Inc., of Brooklyn, New York, was voluntarily recalling what sounds like all of the company's products, which include lox, smoked salmon, whitefish, smoked trout, and more. The FDA warns of the possibility of listeria monocytogenes contamination after the products "were found to be processed under unsanitary condition," an issue that the FDA advises "was discovered through FDA routine inspection."

The Banner Smoked Fish products in question come in "various sizes in both air pack and vacuum packages," according to the recall advisory. It sounds as though at least some of the recalled smoked fish products had not yet made it to shelves, as the FDA says they "were being distributed through retails and distributions, also online purchasing" in the following states: Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

On Wednesday, the FDA stated that no illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem. However, they added that "consumers who have purchased these items are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund" or call Banner Smoked Fish Inc.
