An Illinois company has voluntarily recalled more than 8,000 packages of Vita Classic Premium Sliced Smoked Atlantic Nova Salmon, which may be contaminated with listeria.
Vita Food Products said no illnesses or complaints have been reported by customers, but they are closely monitooring the situation. Listeria can cause fatal infections in children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. In a press release, the company says the packages were sold in "Publix stores in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama; Safeway stores in California, Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Colorado, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia; Meijer stores in Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky; Vons stores in California; Genuardi's stores in Pennsylvania and New Jersey; Winn Dixie stores in Florida, and the Edgewater Produce store in Chicago on or after July 25."
The date and code of "DEC 15 2011 01961B" appears on all of the recalled packages.
