MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. — Two types of smoked salmon are being recalled because they may be contaminated with listeria, a bacteria found in floor cracks and drains at the New York facility where the fish was produced.
Mt. Kisco Smokehouse issued the voluntary recall Tuesday.
The salmon was distributed throughout New York and Connecticut at retail stores and restaurants between Sept. 9 and Sept. 16.
A routine inspection found listeria in floor drains and cracks in the area where the salmon is processed, according to the FDA.
Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children and people with weakened immune systems. Symptoms include fever, headache, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recall, the FDA said.
Whole salmon pieces were packaged in an unlabeled paper box and delivered to restaurants, according to the FDA. Sliced salmon was sold in a clear plastic package and has a label on the back with lot numbers and use-by dates.
Smoked salmon marked with the following lot numbers and use-by dates are included in the recall:
