The Swinomish Fish Company is initiating a voluntary recall of packages of both Traditional and Peppered flavors of NATIVE CATCH SALMON BACON with a “BEST BY” date of 1/23/16 and 3/16/16 distributed in the Western Washington and Florida areas. The Native Catch Salmon Bacon has the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium which can cause life-threatening illness or death. Consumers are warned to not 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.

No illnesses or reactions have been reported to date and no other Native Catch products are involved in this recall. The potential for contamination was noted after a routine Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) inspection discovered that the product had potentially been under processed.

The Native Catch Salmon Bacon products subject to this recall are:
•Peppered flavor with UPC: 7 83583 27965 9, packaged in 8 oz. and 14 oz. clear vacuum bag with Best By codes 1/23/16 and 3/16/16.
•Traditional flavor with UPC: 7 51778 15900 0, packaged in 8 oz. and 14 oz. clear vacuum bags with BEST BY codes 1/23/16 and 3/16/16.

Recalled products were shipped to locations in the states of Washington and Florida between the dates of August 10, 2015 through December 11, 2015 This recall is being made with the knowledge of the WSDA and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

All retail outlets that sell these products are being notified to remove the product with affected date code from their shelves and warehouses immediately. Consumers are urged to dispose of the products or return to the stores where it was purchased.

Consumers may contact Swinomish Fish Company at 1-360-466-0176 weekdays from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM Pacific Time for a replacement or full refund, as well as with general inquires.
