This Major Fish Recall Was Just Expanded to 3 More States, FDA Says
It sounds like a New York City fish company may be having a tough week. Late this week, we reported on the 42 smoked fish products Banner Smoked Fish, Inc. had recalled due to possible bacterial contamination. By end of day Friday, the Food and Drug Administration announced that recall had doubled, with 42 more of the company's fish products pulled from retailers, and three more U.S. states now involved.
If you like smoked fish scrambled into eggs or topped on bagels, here's a serious heads-up: In addition to the 42 varieties of smoked fish products Banner Smoked Fish, Inc. voluntarily recalled this week, the company is now pulling an epic 42 more. And now, adding to the original 17 states with stores and consumers affected by the recall, the company has also added Michigan, Ohio, and Washington. (We link you to the full list of states below.)
It's reported this is all over possible contamination from listeria monocytogenes, an illness-causing bacteria, after the FDA reports they discovered "unsanitary condition" during a routine inspection of Banner Smoked Fish's facilities.
In their smoked fish recall announcement Friday, the FDA described listeria monocytogenes as "an organism which 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."
Please read our original report to see whether the prior 42 Banner Smoked Fish products affect you. (The list of items added Friday is below.)
