October 21, 2015 — Canned seafood retailers in Oregon and Washington continue to expand recalls for products made by Skipanon that could be under-processed or contaminated with the bacteria that causes botulism.
There have been no reports of botulism or food poisoning in association with any of the recalls.
After issuing a recall earlier this week, Oregon-based Northwest Wild Products has recalled three more products. They have codes beginning with “OC” and were sold at a retail store in Astoria and through mail-order.
The recalled canned seafood includes:
- Pacific Black Cod
- Wild Columbia River Coho Salmon
- Columbia River Chinook Salmon
- Wild Steelhead Salmon
- Oregon Sardines
- Wild Columbia River Sturgeon
- Pacific White Albacore Tuna
- Wild Northwest Razor Clams
Washington-based Dungeness Seaworks has recalled all canned albacore tuna products with codes beginning with “OC.” They were sold at several grocery stores in Sequim, Agnew, Poulsbo, and Port Angeles through September 2015.
All of the recalls involve products made by Skipanon Brand Seafood, LLC that might pose a risk of botulism due to under-processing. The FDA was concerned about contamination with the botulism microbe Clostridium botulinum, which produces a powerful nerve toxin that can cause paralysis and death.
