FDA tests identified Listeria monocytogenes in a sample of the product. The company has suspended production of the product while they investigate the source of the contamination.

No illnesses have been reported, but Listeria can cause a life-threatening illness, especially in young children, elderly adults, and others with weakened immune systems.

The symptoms of Listeria infection may include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

The recalled “Pre-Sliced Nova Salmon” were distributed through retail grocery stores in Rhode Island and Connecticut.
