Whole Foods Recalls Salmon Due to Listeria Risk

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.

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

Don't eat fish but thanks for the warning...will pass it on to friends. I have one who eats sockeye most every morning as part of a diet he's on.
