US smoker Catsmo pulls smoked salmon range from 11 states in the USA just before Christmas.

In a post from the US Food and Drug administration, Catsmo, based in the Orange County, New York, USA, is recalling cold smoked salmon products out of an abundance of caution, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled product was distributed in 11 states through retail stores and direct delivery as follows: New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Minnesota , North Carolina, Florida, Virginia, Massachusetts, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C.

“The potential for contamination is a result of a routine FDA environmental sampling and analysis. Out of an abundance of caution the company has decided to conduct an extensive corrective action plan and verification program so production can resume as soon as possible,” the FDA wrote.

“No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue,” it added.
