TGF Production LLC has issued a recall for its Herring Fish in Salt Water product because the fish was not properly eviscerated prior to processing.
The viscera (internal organs) of the fish are the location where Clostridium botulinum spores are most likely to be concentrated. When not properly gutted, the spores may be left behind possibly, resulting in the consumer developing botulism poisoning. Symptoms of botulism may include blurry or double vision, general weakness, slower reflexes, difficulty swallowing and respiratory paralysis.
The recalled Herring Fish in Salt Water was sold nationwide in a 1,300g (2.866lb) round plastic container with the code number 20.02.11 PVI44AMIC2. The Herring Fish is a product of Russia and the container displays Russian writing.
Consumers are advised not to eat the Herring Fish in Salt Water and should return the product to the place of purchase. Consumers may contact TGF Production LLC at (646) 546-5847 with any additional questions or concerns.
