Foppen Seafood recalls smoked salmon slices from Kroger and Payless stores across fifteen states due to listeria contamination

On a seemingly regular day, an important notice hit the newsstands.

Salmon slices sold at Kroger and Payless stores across fifteen states have been recalled due to potential listeria contamination.

What You Need to Know

Foppen Seafood has issued a voluntary recall for their ‘Smoked Norwegian Salmon Slices’ after routine testing revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in one of their lots.

These 8.1-ounce packages, identified by lot number ‘412’ and UPC code ‘8 40137 10000 2,’ were distributed in states including Alabama, Arkansas, and Georgia, among others.

Understanding Listeria

Listeria is a serious bacteria that can cause listeriosis, a potentially fatal illness, especially for the elderly, young children, and those with weakened immune systems.

Symptoms range from mild, like fever and muscle aches, to severe, such as confusion and convulsions.

FDA’s Involvement

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the recall on Tuesday, urging consumers to dispose of or return the affected salmon slices for a refund.

It’s critical to heed this advice to avoid the risk of illness.

Symptoms and Precautions

If you have consumed the potentially contaminated salmon and experience symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or severe headaches, seek medical attention promptly.

The duration and severity of symptoms can vary, so it’s better to be cautious.

Company’s Response

Foppen Seafood has emphasized their commitment to high standards of health, safety, and quality control.

They are actively working with Kroger and the FDA to resolve this issue swiftly and ensure consumer safety.

Not Just Salmon: Ice Cream Concerns

In a related development, more than 70 ice cream brands have also been recalled this week due to listeria concerns.

Maryland-based Totally Cool has halted production and distribution of their ice cream products, impacting brands like Friendly’s and Hershey’s.
