October 17, 2009: TGF Production, LLC Recalls Uneviscerated Herring

October 19th, 2009

Herring Salted, which was found to being uneviscerated, has been recalled due to the possibility of being contaminated with Clostridium botulinum.

The FDA recall release stated that the herring was distributed nationwide in 1.3kg (2.86 lb) round plastic containers with the code numbers 24.08.09 and 13.07.09. The Herring Salted is a product of Russia.  An image of the product can be seen here.

According to the FDA, “the sale of this type of fish is prohibited under a New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets regulations because Clostridium botulinum spores are more likely to be concentrated in the viscera than in any other portion of the fish. Uneviscerated fish has been linked to outbreaks of botulism poisoning.”
