Ossie’s Ready-To-Eat Salads Recalled For Possible Listeria Risk

Image result for ossies
SM Fish Corporation of New York is voluntarily recalling OSSIE’S brand ready to eat salads because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the consumption of these products, but listeriosis, the illness caused by this bacteria, can take up to 70 days to appear.
The recalled products were sold at the firm’s seven retail outlets located in New York and New Jersey between Aug. 1, 2016, and Sept. 9, 2016.

The recalled products were packed in plastic deli containers with a UPC Code and “Best By” date codes of 8/21/16 through 10/18/16 (located on the bottom of the tub).

If you purchased any of the recalled products, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed or double bagged container so other people and animals can’t get at them, or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund. Wash your hands well after handling these products.
Then clean out your refrigerator or wherever you stored the products with a mild bleach solution of 1 tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to 1 gallon of warm water to kill any remaining bacteria. Listeria bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures.
The company announced a recall of its OSSIE’S brand ready-to-eat herring salads last month, also for potential Listeria contamination.
FDA will vacate the Suspension of Food Facility Registration Order and reinstate SM Fish’s food facility registration only when the agency determines that food from its facility no longer has a reasonable probability of causing serious adverse health consequences or death to humans.
