CARLISLE — Giant Food Stores have removed several products from store shelves after a recall of smoked salmon due to a possible listeria contamination.
Ocean Beauty Seafoods has removed three varieties of salmon from sale: the 8- and 3-ounce Nathan’s Nova Salmon packages and a 3-ounce Lascco smoked salmon package.
The packages were recalled in December after internal testing by Ocean Beauty Seafoods revealed the presence of listeria monocytogenes in the products.
The supermarket chain hasn’t received any reports of illnesses to date, according to a press release by the company.
Customers who have purchased the recalled products should discard any unused portions and can bring their purchase receipt to any Giant location for a full refund.
Consumption of food contaminated with listeria can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Symptoms include high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea.
Consumers looking for additional information on the recall may call Ocean Beauty
