Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Salmon Lox Fish products are subject to this recall:

  • Cold Smoked Wild Coho Salmon Lox, sold in three (3) ounce packages with a batch/lot designation of CSCO-17339, a pack date code of 17-340 and shipped directly to distributors in CA, MD and WA between the dates of 12/8/17 and 4/10/18. The Fish products may have been further distributed and sold through retail stores at least in these states.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled Salmon Lox Fish can be found on the Web site above.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the FDA, this recall was initiated because the product’s water phase salt testing below 3.5%. Labeling instructions state to freeze or refrigerate, once thawed the Salmon Fish can be kept unopened in the fridge for up to 30 days. Because the water phase salt in the recalled Fish products is suspected to be under 3.5%, the product must remain frozen until ready to consume. Keeping the Fish in the refrigerator after thawing in a reduced oxygen package has the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum.

==> For information about Botulism, please consult the “Illnesses” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Salmon Lox Fish products, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the Fish to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
