Frozen cold smoked salmon (as well as one fresh product) is being recalled by the Federal Way, Washington-based Salmolux because of the products’ potential to be contaminated by Listeria monocytogenes. Food and Drug Administration testing has already ascertained that Listeria could be found in samples of finished product, and thus it’s imperative that consumers bring the salmon back to obtain a refund. Nearly 5,000 pounds of salmon were available in a handful of states, including California. Listeria can lead to fever, nausea, diarrhea, and even more serious maladies in certain susceptible demographics. The recall affects various sizes of salmon under the Sea Passion, Raley’s, and Jensen’s Old Fashion Smokehouse brands.
