Smoked salmon recalled

Sliced smoked sockeye salmon is the subject of a recall due to potential listeria contamination.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said Jan. 27 that the One Ocean brand of sliced smoked wild sockeye, distributed in Alberta and possibly nationally, is being recalled by Orca Specialty Foods Inc. The product is in the 300 gram size with the code 11252.

There are no reports of anyone becoming ill from eating the product. The recall was triggered by CFIA test results and an investigation is underway, the agency said.

Food contaminated with listeria can appear fine but eating it can result in vomiting, fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. It is especially dangerous to pregnant women, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.

Anyone who has purchased the salmon should throw it away or return it to place of purchase, the CFIA advised
