Salmon recall

Batches of smoked salmon have been withdrawn from sale owing to possible Listeria contamination.

The Essex-based Scotch Smoked Salmon Co. Ltd has recalled two of its smoked salmon products because the bacterium known as Listeria monocytogenes has been found in them.

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that can cause foodborne illness - particularly among pregnant women, unborn and newborn babies, those over 60 years old, and anyone with reduced immunity.

The products affected by the recall are:

Products: Smoked Scottish Salmon and Smoked Scotch Salmon

Pack sizes: 100g, 200g and 400g

Batch code: 219ds

Date code: 14 March 2016

Anyone who has purchased either of the named products, should not consume them, instead returning them to the store from where they were bought for a full refund.
