October 21, 2015 — Two more companies have expanded recalls for canned seafood made by Skipanon that may pose a risk of botulism.
No reports of illness have been linked to any of the recalls. However, botulism is one of the most serious types of food poisoning.
Northwest Wild Products of Astoria, Oregon has expanded a recall issued on October 19 to include three more products.
The company has voluntarily recalled all canned black cod, salmon, sardines, steelhead, sturgeon, tuna, and Razor clams with any codes starting with “OC.” The products were sold to consumers in Oregon from a retail store and through mail-order.
Dungeness Seaworks of Sequim, Washington is only recalling canned albacore tuna with any code starting with “OC.” The products were sold at several retail stores in Washington through September 2015.
The recalls were issued after an inspection of Skipanon Brand Seafood LLC by the FDA discovered that products were possibly under-processed. They could potentially be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacteria that produces a powerful nerve toxin that can cause paralysis and death.
According to the FDA, botulism symptoms may include general weakness, dizziness, double-vision, trouble speaking or swallowing, difficulty breathing, muscle weakness, abdominal distention, and constipation.
