These “La” Stimpson’s Surf Clam Seafood products were known to be marketed, distributed and sold at the Moncton Fish Market in Moncton, New Brunswick, although it is always possible these food products had wider distribution within the country.

According to the CFIA, Moncton Fish Market Ltd has recalled certain batch/lots of Moncton Fish Market branded “La” Stimpson’s Surf Clams from the Canadian marketplace due to suspected Clostridium botulinum contamination. As a result of this reported defect, you should neither serve nor consume the recalled Surf Clams identified above.

This recall was initiated after it was discovered that some jars of Moncton Fish Market “La” Stimpson’s Surf Clams had been sold unrefrigerated to consumers. As a consequence, the Seafood may be subject to Clostridium botulinum bacterial growth. Since it is impossible to ascertain whether the cold chain was broken for a particular bottle of the Surf Clams, it should be assumed that all current batch/lots of this product are contaminated and should not be consumed.

==> 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.

Proposed Remedy:
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Moncton Fish Market branded “La” Stimpson’s Surf Clams, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation.
