Skipanon Recalls All Canned Seafood

October 13, 2015 — Skipanon Brand Seafoods LLC has issued a recall for all canned seafood products because they may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacteria that can cause botulism.

No reports of illness or botulism have been linked to the recall. The recall was initiated after FDA inspectors found a lack of documentation and possibly under-processed products.

All lots and sizes of all Skipanon-brand seafood are being recalled. The products were distributed to wholesalers and retailers in Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. They were also sold online from the manufacturer’s website. The last distribution date was in September 2015.
