CSFPDX LLC of Garibaldi, Oregon is voluntarily recalling ALL CS Fishery Wild Albacore Tuna with any codes starting with “OC”, canned by a third party, Skipanon Brand Seafoods LLC, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium which can cause life-threatening illness or death. Consumers are warned not to use the product even if it does not look or smell spoiled.
Botulism, a potentially fatal form of food poisoning, can cause the following symptoms: general weakness, dizziness, double-vision and trouble with speaking or swallowing. Difficulty in breathing, weakness of other muscles, abdominal distension and constipation may also be common symptoms. People experiencing these problems should seek immediate medical attention.
This recall only affects the CS Fishery Wild Albacore Tuna in cans, net weight 64 oz. (4 lbs.), code OCK 16APR2017 (can be found on either the bottom or on top of the can),which we purchased from Skipanon Brand Seafoods LLC. Our other canned seafood products, including 7.5 oz. canned premium Wild Line Caught Albacore Tuna, are not affected by this recall.
The recalled product was sold to consumers at our retail location or distributed to retail stores and wholesalers in Oregon. The last date of distribution of recalled products was September 2015.
There have been no reported cases of illnesses associated with our product to date.
Consumers who have purchased recalled CS Fishery Wild Albacore Tuna, 64 oz. cans, are urged to destroy or return it to the firm for a full refund.
