Yummy Market Inc. is recalling Yummy Market brand Smoked Lake Trout with Cracked Black Pepper from the marketplace because of the potential presence of dangerous bacteria.
Consumers should not consume the recalled product which has best before dates of October 25th and November 1st packaged in variable sizes and UPC codes.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the recall was triggered by a consumer complaint and the recalled product was sold from Yummy Market’s Maple, Ontario store.
Botulism poisoning is so dangerous that it is considered a public health emergency.
Food contaminated with Clostridium botulinum toxin may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick.
Symptoms in adults can include facial paralysis or loss of facial expression, unreactive or fixed pupils, difficulty swallowing, drooping eyelids, blurred or double vision, difficulty speaking or including slurred speech, and a change in sound of voice, including hoarseness.
Symptoms of foodborne botulism in children can include difficulty swallowing, slurred speech, generalized weakness and paralysis. In all cases, botulism does not cause a fever. In severe cases of illness, people may die.
