Announcement

OleBob's Seafoods of Ilwaco WA is voluntarily recalling ALL canned tuna and canned salmon products with a code starting with "OC" because it has the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium that 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.

** There have been no reported cases of illness to date. **

All products were sold under the OleBob's Seafoods label to consumers from our retail store in Ilwaco, WA, and sold to internet consumers from the website www.olebobs.comdisclaimer icon. The dates of distribution of recalled products were May 2014-September 2015. Affected cans have the letters "OC" stamped on either the bottom or the top of the can.

OleBob's canned salmon and tuna products were made by Skipanon Brand Seafoods and this voluntary recall was initiated after we were notified 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 are advised to discard or return recalled product to OleBob's Seafoods for a refund.
