Smoked Salmon Recall


Vita Food Products is recalling 8,000 packages of its premium sliced smoked Atlantic nova salmon, warning that the product could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The salmon was sold in Idaho stores, as well as 20 other states.

The packages (black in color) have "sell by" dates of Dec. 15, 2011, and would have been purchased on July 25 or after.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, the Listeria monocytogenes organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.
