Hudson Valley Smokehouse Issues Food Recall
If you have recently purchased smoked salmon, please check the packaging to see if it is involved in this recall from the Mt. Kisco Smokehouse.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, two types of smoked salmon are involved in the recall due to the possible danger of Listeria Monocytogenes, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, elderly, or those with already weakened immune systems. In addition, an infection caused by Listeria could cause miscarriages or still births in pregnant women.
While for most healthy individuals, the symptoms wouldn't last long and could include fever, headache, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, it isn't something that you want to mess with.
