Smoked seafood products recalled for bacteria contamination
Today, Pomona-based Foremost Foods International Inc. issued a recalled of some of their seafood products sold under the Pangasinan brand name.
The recall concerns smoked seafood products which could potentially cause botulism in people who consume the product. According to the Food and Drug Administration, the recalled Pangasinan smoked seafood products “have the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacteria which can cause life-threatening illness or death.”
Consumers who have purchased the recalled products should throw them out even if they do not appear or smell spoiled. The products were sold between March 2010 and October 2011 in California, Nevada, and Washington.
