Announcement

The Spot of Garibaldi, Oregon is voluntarily recalling ALL canned salmon and tuna 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 from our retail store in Oregon. 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 at the bottom or on top of the can. Recalled products are packaged in metal cans with net weight 6 oz. for salmon or 8 oz. for tuna.

There have been no reported cases of illnesses associated with our products to date.

The Spot canned seafood products were made by Skipanon Brand Seafoods LLC and this voluntary recall was initiated after we were notified that that our products were possibly under- processed. The problem was discovered during an inspection at Skipanon Brand Seafoods LLC by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Consumers who have purchased recalled canned seafood products are urged to destroy or return it to the firm for a full refund.

If you have any questions, please call The Spot at 503-322-0080 between the hours of 10 am and 5 pm PST, Monday-Friday (closed Tuesday).
