DETROIT (WWJ) – Nearly 5,000 pounds of cold smoked salmon are being recalled by Salmolux because of a possible health risk. The products, which were sold across the nation including Michigan, are being taken off the shelves because they could be contaminated with listeria.

Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

No illnesses have been reported.
