Whole Foods Recalls Salmon Due to Listeria Risk

Whole Foods Market is recalling Whole Catch Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon due to a risk of Listeria contamination. A sample of the product tested positive for Listeria, but to date no illnesses have been reported.

About Listeria
Listeriosis is a foodborne illness caused by Listeria monocytogenes, bacteria that can be found in soil and water. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Listeria can be found in raw or processed foods. Listeria can grow even in the cold temperatures of the refrigerator. Listeria can cause a severe and potentially fatal infection in children, people with weak immune systems, and in the elderly. Healthy people may experience high fever, severe headaches, chills, upset stomach, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women infected with Listeria are at increased risk of miscarriage or stillbirth.

Not familair with this brand but thanks for the heads up. I prefer Scottish though when it comes to smoked salmon.

It is scary to think there have been so many recalls on food. Sounds like buy any food at your own risk.
