Announcement

This is an update by Northwest Wild Products of Astoria, Oregon of a prior press release issued 10/19/15, relating to the recall of canned seafood products.  The purpose of this updated press release is to include three additional recalled products.  Consumers should disregard the previous press release.

Northwest Wild Products of Astoria, Oregon is voluntarily recalling ALL canned black cod, salmon, sardines, steelhead, sturgeon, tuna, and Razor clams with any codes starting with “OC” because it has the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium which can cause life-threatening illness or death.  Consumers are warned not to 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.

All products were sold to consumers in Oregon from our retail store and through mail order.The last date of distribution of recalled products was September 2015.  Affected production codes include any codes starting with “OC”.  The code can be found on either the bottom or on top of the can.  Recalled products are packaged in metal cans with net weight 6.5 oz.
