December 26, 2012: True Taste Recalls Smoked Fish Due To Botulism Concern

December 26th, 2012

On December 18th, True Taste LLC from Kenosha, WI placed a recall on multiple smoked fish due to the concern that they may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, including: Hot Smoked Rainbow Trout, Hot Smoked Whitefish, Hot Smoked Herring, Hot Smoked Mackerel, Hot Smoked Salmon Steak, Cold Smoked Mackerel, and Cold Smoked Whitefish.  The recalled fish is package and vacuum packed with either the True Taste Label from California or a Lowell Foods Label from Illinois.

According to the FDA, this recall included vacuum packed smoked fish that was in production anytime after 01/01/12.  This date can be found on the packaging from the first set of numbers on the white sticker.

Clostridium botulinum is a bacterium that causes the Botulism infection.  Symptoms of botulism may include dry mouth, difficulty swallowing, slurred speech or difficulty speaking, muscle weakness, blurred vision, double vision, and drooping eyelids. Symptoms usually appear 12 to 36 hours after consuming Clostridium botulinum toxin; however, symptoms can occur as early as 6 hours or as late as 10 days following the consumption of contaminated food.
