Giant Food Stores said it has removed several varieties of smoked salmon from sale following a recall by Ocean Beauty Seafoods.
The recall is due to possible contamination by listeria monocytogenes.
The products included in the recall are:
- Nathan's Nova Salmon, 3 o.z., UPC 7303080368, all sell by dates;
- Nathan's Nova Salmon, 8 o.z., UPC 7303080369, all sell by dates; and
- Lascco Smoked Salmon, 3 o.z., UPC 7284001703, all sell by dates.
Giant spokesman Christopher Brand said the company has received no reports of illnesses.
He said customers who have purchased the salmon should discard any unused portions and bring their purchase receipt to Giant for a full refund.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis. The disease is rarely contracted by healthy people, but can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea.
Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.
