Companies Announce Fish Recalls Because of Botulism Fears

In Food Recalls on April 12, 2012 at 1:11 am

Import Foods Wholesale Inc. is recalling Smoked Croaker, Smoked Barracuda, Smoked Big Eye and Smoked Red Snapper due to fears of contamination with Clostridium botulinum spores.

The problem was announced by the Minnesota Dept. of Agriculture Laboratory personnel Tuesday who confirmed the product was not properly eviscerated prior to processing.

The sale of improperly eviscerated fish, 5 inches in length or greater, is prohibited because Clostridium botulinum spores are more likely to be concentrated in the viscera than any other portion of the fish.

The products subject to recall include:

– Smoked Croaker in a 10lb cardboard box with a code: 298/11 – Smoked Barracuda in a 10lb cardboard box with a code: 0282/011 – Smoked Big Eye in a 10lb cardboard box with a code: 287L10 – Smoked Red Snapper in a 10lb cardboard box with a code: 298-11. (All the products were made in Guyana.)
