  • Gold Star Smoke Fish Corp. is recalling its Cold Smoked Steelhead in vaccuum packs, featuring blue and gold labels, over fear the meat could have become contaminated by Listeria monocytogenes.

    Researchers from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Southern Denmark showed last month in a study that Listeria is constantly adapting to its surroundings, taking on a number of strategies to withstand threats, and making it hard to fight. Listeria can cause headaches, muscle aches, nausea, loss of balance, a stiff neck and convulsions. Listeria infections can be fatal for younger children, older people or others with weak immune systems.

    The recall at Gold Star was initiated when New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors sampled the products and found the presence of Listeria. The products were distributed across the nation.

    Lobster bisque recall
    in a separate report, the Original Soupman is recalling some of its Lobster Bisque cartons because new labels did not indicate the product contains shrimp, perch and tilapia in its base. The products were sold in 17 oz. tetra pak cartons.

    There were no reported incidences of allergic reactions as a result of the recalled products.
