Canned Seafoods Recalled by Skipanon Brand and Garibaldi Cannery
Saturday, October 17, 2015
Skipannon Brand Seafoods is recalling all lots and all sizes of canned seafood products while Garibaldi Cannery is recalling all cans with any code starting with "OC."
The products are being recalled due to possible contamination with Clostridium botulism, a bacteria that can cause life threatening illness or death. Both companies products have been sold to internet consumers across the nation.
Botulism is a form of potentially fatal food poisoning and can cause general weakness, dizziness, double vision, and trouble with speaking or swallowing. Other symptoms can include difficulty breathing, muscle weakness, abdominal dissension and constipation.
Anyone with these symptoms should seek medical attention immediately.
To date, there have been no reported cases of illness.
