ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) – Wasilla-based Smoked Alaska Seafoods, Inc. has issued a recall for all 6.5 ounces of smoked silver salmon jars and cans due to the possibility of a potentially life-threatening bacterial contamination.
Containers with the production code AL81111133 on the bottom of the jar may be contaminated or may be contaminated with clostridium botulinum which may lead to botulism – a rare but potentially lethal bacterial infection.
According to the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation's food safety and sanitary program, clostridium botulinum can cause life-threatening disease or even death.
DEC says the product was distributed throughout the state, mainly to gift shops in and around Anchorage and Fairbanks.
So far, no cases of disease related to the product have been reported.
The department warns people against using the product with the production code, even though the content does not appear or smell spoiled. [1
