Mislabeled Salmon Products Reeled In

Interior Alaska Fish Processors from Fairbanks, Alaska, is recalling nearly 700 pounds of mislabeled smoked salmon sold from its retail store in Fairbanks during the last two months, News Miner reported.

The store issued the voluntary recall for Santa's Smokehouse gourmet smoked salmon because labels on some of the packages advised consumers to keep the product refrigerated, not frozen. The fish is supposed to be refrigerated right before eating to prevent botulism, a potentially fatal form of food poisoning, the source reported.

"This product was to be sold frozen due to its possible lower salt content," the store said in a press release. "Low salt content smoked salmon product that is vacuum sealed can be subject to the growth of clostridium botulinum if contaminated prior to vacuum sealing."

Quality Food World is also recalling smoked salmon products. Its Olive Branch Smoked Salmon Dairy Free dip or spread contains egg-based mayonnaise, but eggs were not listed in the ingredients on the label, Nine News reported.

The company said consumers with an egg allergy or intolerance could have a reaction if the food was consumed. The products were distributed to food grocers in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and South Australia.
