Seven Seas International USA, LLC, St. Petersburg, Fla., is recalling its 4 oz. Biltmore Smoked Sockeye Salmon because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The 4 oz. Biltmore Smoked Sockeye Salmon was distributed only in Florida by Publix Grocery stores. The product can be identified by its production code, which is a four digit code printed on the clear vacuum bag that contains the product. The Biltmore Smoked Sockeye product is sold in 4 oz. black printed carton sleeves with the Brand name “Biltmore” printed on the front, containing the smoked sockeye product in a clear vacuum bag, the product is displayed on a gold plate. Only products with Production Code 41CM and a sell by date of 23rd May 2019 are subject to this recall, all other production codes are not part of this recall. The product carries the following UPC code: 007-36211-88774
The recall was the result of a routine sampling program by the Florida Department of Agriculture, which revealed that some of the finished product samples tested positive for the bacteria. Seven Seas and Publix out of an abundance of caution have decided to voluntarily remove all of the Biltmore Smoked Salmon of this particular production code. All subsequent production codes were tested and found not to contain the bacteria. The FDA and Seven Seas International USA, LLC continue their investigation as to what caused the problem.
