There have been many food recalls that have hit California food producers, some causing a number of illnesses. While there have been no reported botulism cases from JFC International’s capelin fish, it is still not advised that anyone eat any. The Associated Press has additional information on the fish recall, noting:
JFC International Inc. of Los Angeles said consumers shouldn’t eat the product even if it doesn’t look or smell spoiled. The recall affects about 540 cartons of capelin, averaging 8 pounds apiece, that were sold nationwide in restaurants and retail stores between September and December.
Botulism is a potentially fatal form of food poisoning. The company said no illnesses have been reported.
The frozen capelin came from Vietnam and says “Shishamo ‘Imura'” on the wrapped Styrofoam tray.
