The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of 132 pounds of Acme-brand smoked salmon due to possible contamination.
The Acme Smoked Fish Corp. initiated the voluntary recall after routine testing by the Florida Department of Agriculture revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in one four-ounce package. The organism poses a potential health rise for pregnant women, young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.
Being recalled were four-ounce and eight-ounce packages of Acme N.Y. Original Smoked Salmon with batch code 9428 and a sell-by-date of 9-26/2007. The recalled fish was originally distributed to retail stores in the south Florida.
Consumers with questions can contact the company at 718-383-8585.
