FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Atlanta, GA -- December 15, 2005 -- Woodsmoke Provisions, LLC is voluntarily recalling twenty eight pounds (28 lbs.) / 112 individual packages of Premium Smoked Salmon Pastrami Style packed in 4 oz. vacuum packages with the specific lot code 301-05 855 which was manufactured October 28th, 2005 and distributed through a limited number of The Fresh Market, Inc. stores located in FL, AL, TN, NC, VA, GA, and LA because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Premium Smoked Salmon Pastrami Style from lot code 301-05 855 conducted by the Department's food laboratory personnel revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in only one of the three tested packages.
