Oh Oh!!! Recall on Schmaltz Herring!

The FDA is recalling Ossie’s Schmaltz Herring due to Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The disease has a higher mortality rate (25%) than salmonella (1%), and has been known to affect raw and smoked fish, as in this case.It is also caused by lack of refrigeration of produce below 39 degrees, and by a lack of using pasteurization (heat) to kill the pathogen. 

Ossie’s Schmaltz Herring is packed in a 12 oz plastic container coded 2/0311. It is a product of USA. Product was distributed throughout New York State.
Consumers that have purchased Ossie’s Schmaltz Herring should not consume it, but should return it to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 347-533-8200.
