Rushing Waters Fisheries of Palmyra recalls [about 225 lbs.] smoked trout, salmon spreads

December 1, 2010

Rushing Waters Fisheries of Palmyra announced Tuesday it is recalling about 225 pounds of smoked trout and smoked salmon spreads because the products may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Most healthy individuals are either unaffected by Listeria or experience mild flulike symptoms, according to state officials. However, it can cause complications in pregnant women and have more serious effects on newborns, older adults and people with compromised immune systems.

The products being recalled are:

  • Smoked trout spread labeled lot number 00694 with a sell-by date of Dec. 13, 2010
  • Smoked salmon spread labeled with lot 50012 with a sell-by date of Dec. 11, 2010

No illnesses have been reported from eating the spreads. The contamination was discovered through routine testing conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection.
