True Taste of Wisconsin is recalling a number of smoked fish products because they may be contaminated with Clostribium botulinum, a bacteria that can cause the potentially fatal form of food poisoning known as botulism. If you became ill after consuming one of the fish items detailed below—or if you or a family member suffered harm as a result of contaminated food or other defective consumer product—the Mobile, Alabama, product liability attorneys at Long & Long may be able to help you obtain the financial security you need to cope with medical expenses and other damages. According to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) True Taste recall page, the recall affects the following vacuum-packaged fish products:

  • Hot Smoked Rainbow Trout
  • Hot Smoked Whitefish
  • Hot Smoked Herring
  • Hot Smoked Mackerel
  • Hot Smoked Salmon Steak
  • Cold Smoked Mackerel
  • Cold Smoked Whitefish

The products were sold under the True Taste and Lowell Foods labels. The recall affects production dates beginning on 01/01/2012 through December 2012. Although no illnesses have yet been reported in association with these products, a Dec. 19, 2012, article on Food Safety News indicated that the fish products listed here were not processed in a manner that properly prevents against possible Clostridium botulinum bacteria contamination. The FDA website said consumers should not use these products even if they do not appear or smell spoiled. Botulism is potentially deadly and can cause symptoms including dizziness, weakness, double-vision, difficulty breathing, abdominal distension, and trouble swallowing and speaking. If you were injured or a family member died as a result of contaminated food or defective consumer product, please contact Long & Long for your free case consultation. Our experienced product liability lawyers welcome clients from the greater Mobile, Alabama, area.
