Oregon Canneries Recall Tuna and Salmon for Botulism Risk

Oregon Canneries Recall Tuna and Salmon for Botulism Risk

October 16, 2015 — Two more seafood canneries in Oregon have issued recalls for tuna and salmon products made by Skipanon Seafood that may be under-processed and could pose a risk of botulism.

There have been no reports of illness associated with the recalls. Both companies sold products that were made by Skipanon Brand Seafood LLC. The recalls were initiated after the FDA became concerned that the products might be under-processed or cause botulism.
