Both Garibaldi Cannery and Ecola Seafoods are recalling canned salmon and tuna products. Consumers are warned to throw away all cans regardless if they don’t smell or look spoiled. The products are believed to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium which can cause life-threatening illness or death.
These products have been shipped to consumers nationwide. Products containing codes starting with “OC” and packaged in metal cans are part of the recall. All products were made by Skipanon Brand Seafoods LLC and believed to be under-processed during canning, causing the bacteria to develop. The problem was found during a routine inspection by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The last date of distribution of the recalled products was September 2015. The Garibaldi Company has asked that consumers contact them for replacement products, as they have received new canned products from a different manufacturer to offer. Replacements or refunds will only be given for products that are returned to The Garibaldi Cannery. Their new products contain codes starting with “B” located on the top of the can.
Notify the companies if you have any concerns or questions regarding the recall.
