Burren Smokehouse Ltd is recalling packs of its Organic Smoked Salmon and Wild Smoked Salmon after Listeria monocytogenes was detected in batches of its organic salmon last week.
The company initially put out a recall of just its Organic Smoked Salmon but has since extended it to its Wild Smoked Salmon too.
The Plain, Honey Whiskey Fennel and Honey Dill Organic Smoked Salmon flavours are thought to be affected, while the Food Safety Authority of Ireland says further batches of Burren Smokehouse Ltd organic smoked salmon are currently being tested.
All 40g, 100g, 160g, 200g, 300g, 500g packs, 750g and 1 kg sides are being recalled, while food businesses are be requested to removed the affected batches ( codes 5045 O, 5048 O, 5054 O, 5059 O and 5062 O) from sale and display a point of sale notice telling customers not to eat the product.
Listeria monocytogenes can grow at refrigeration temperatures and may lead to Listeriosis if ingested, which can prove life threatening to pregnant women, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems. [Photo courtesy of Burren.ie]
