October 22, 2015 — The canned seafood recalls linked to Skipanon has spread to three more retailers in Oregon and Washington.
All of the products were made by Skipanon and marked with codes beginning with “OC.” The recalled products include:
- Brigham Fish Market: Recalled 6-oz canned Chinook salmon (smoked and unsmoked).
- The Spot: Recalled all canned tuna and salmon sold at a retail store in Garibaldi, Oregon under the “Spot-On” brand.
- VIS Seafoods: Recalled all canned salmon and smoked salmon sold to consumers from a retail store in Bellingham, Washington.
No illnesses have bene linked to any of the recalls. FDA inspectors were concerned about a lack of documentation at a Skipanon facility in Oregon.
Under-processed canned food can potentially be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacteria that produces a powerful nerve toxin that causes the paralytic illness botulism.
Botulism is rare but always a medical emergency. The FDA warns that symptoms may include general weakness, dizziness, double-vision, trouble speaking or swallowing, difficulty breathing, muscle weakness, abdominal distention, and constipation.
