State tests by Florida inspectors spurred officials with the Publix grocery store chain to recall Biltmore branded smoked salmon because of the risk of Listeria monocytogenes.
The implicated fish was not sold in GreenWise stores, according to the recall notice on the Publix website. As of May 12, the recall notice had not been posted by the Food and Drug Administration. Seven Seas International LLC USA of St. Petersburg, FL, supplied Publix with the sockeye salmon.
The Listeria problem “was discovered through routine regulatory testing conducted by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services,” according to the recall notice.
“Consumers who have purchased this product are being advised not to consume it and return it to the store where it was originally purchased for a full refund,” the recall states.
