Whole Foods Market has announced a recall of salmon due to possible contamination with listeria monocytogenes. A news release filed on Monday by the U,S, Food and Drug Administration identifies the recalled product as Whole Catch Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon, which is sold in 4-ounce packages. The product was sold cold-smoked and sliced in Whole Foods stores in 12 states including Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Rhode Island, and Utah.
The recalled item is packaged in black-and-gold, flat, rectangular vacuum-sealed pouches. It carries a lot code of 7425A2298B ink-jet printed on the upper left side on the rear of the package. It also carries the UPC code 0 99482 40880 0..
So far no illnesses have been reported in connection with consumption of the salmon, though consumers are advised to discard any product that contains the above-mentioned codes. A full refund will be provided at the store where the product was purchased. Customers with questions are urged to call 512-542-0060, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central time.
A similar recall was announced in December for a product line produced by a Wisconsin company. The two recalls are unrelated.
